Welcome back to day two of my 3-day quote challenge! If you haven’t already, you can take a look at day one here.
Today’s quote is one of my favourites and I think of it quite often:
This quote actually helped me when I was in recovery. I struggled a lot with the idea that whatever weight I’m at, there’s always going to be someone who dislikes it.
It was quite difficult to work through. There were times where I just couldn’t see a way forward because no matter what I decided to do, I knew there was always going to be someone out there that would have something negative to say about my body.
I’ve seen people being bullied for being fat. I’ve seen people being bullied for being thin. If you’re somewhere in between, there are still plenty of people out there just waiting to tell you what’s wrong with your body.
How on earth was I meant to recover and be happy in my own body when so many people would just hate it?
That’s where this quote comes in.
Basically, you will never please everyone, and there will always be someone who doesn’t like who you are or what you’re doing with your life. Does that mean you’re wrong and you should change? Probably not. It simply means you disagree with each other, and that’s ok.
It’s a good lesson to learn and it’s even harder to put into practice. Even now, I get nervous about posting certain things online because I know there will be people with hurtful things to say.
But all I can do is be the best version of myself I can possibly be, and if people don’t like that then that’s absolutely fine.
I would now like to nominate another three bloggers for this challenge:
1. Fractured Faith Blog
2. Sophie Harris @ Purrpale
