My dear readers! It’s finally that time of year again – Christmas is here! Tonight’s Christmas Eve and I hope that all of you are with their loved ones, their families and friends and that you’ll celebrate with loads of love and food. Cause that’s what matters most, right? It’s not about the presents – and yet, I’ve got something for you that will hopefully make at least two people happy, yay!
I want to wish you all a very merry Christmas and tell you that you deserve all the best in the world. I know that many of you aren’t happy when they drive home for Christmas to their families and get fatshamed or have to listen to a list of other things that are wrong with you and it breaks my heart to know that such a wonderful time of the year keeps being misused for something that sad – even though most of the people doing this don’t even understand how much they’re breaking you. So please, don’t listen to what they say about your body or you in general, your life choices, your partner or the one you don’t have, or anything else that’s actually your own business.
I want you to know that you don’t need to believe all this as long as you’re happy with who you are and what you’re doing. And even if you’re not, there’s no use in trying to please them by belittling yourself through their words. All that matters is you and your feelings. Don’t let them be hurt! I would like to say to you that you should step up for yourself, tell them that this is not okay and that you don’t deserve to listen to all that crap and if they don’t understand, you should think about next Christmas with people who don’t take family reunions as an excuse to tell you you’re not good the way you are. Because you are! ♥
