Something which I have never - and never will - understand is people who randomly comment negative things about people's bodies. It doesn't matter what shape or size someone is, whether their weight is unhealthy (whatever reason that may be), it is never ok. But also people who judge others based on their size or weight. Infact one thing that can make me very irritated or even angry is when people close to me or people beside me begin commenting on other people's body or start judging them based on their body. I would never do that, even if someone might not look the healthiest... it is not my place to judge.
Anyway, what happened this morning at the gym was that an old man came up to me while I was working out and told me that I shouldn't be lifting so heavy and that I was looking manly with my muscles. I was shocked. ... I didn't even respond I just said ok and kept working out. But for the rest of my workout he just sort of sat and stared at me and had a disgusted look on his face each time I went and increased the weights I used. It's not the first time this has happened and I just wonder at their audacity. ... I mean I would never go up to someone and tell them that they are looking a certain way, unless I'm complementing them. But then I prefer to compliment their technique or their hard work, not their body.
I've also found that some older women in the changing room seem to look at me in a disgusted manor. Who knows maybe I'm just sensitive or reading into it too much, or maybe that is just how they look. Or maybe it's the fact that I wear shorts woke working out. .. or maybe it's my tattoos, who knows. But it kind of feels like they look at me and then start giving me weird looks.... though of course I'm not a mind reader so I don't know what they are thinking. But I sometimes feel like rhe older generation might not really understand that women can also have muscles and tattoos ^-^ it's not just for Men! !
But also I wonder why people think it's ok to sit behind a screen and write negative things about people's bodies or comment on someone's picture and tell them that they should change or they don't like the way the person looks.... it feels unnecessary. Some say that if you post a photo then you need to be prepared for negative comments and hate. ... but why. Why should a person expect to get hate comments when they post a picture of themselves? Can't people just accept the fact that everyone looks different, has different shapes, sizes, weight, height and that's ok. And everyone looks different and that means that how a person looks might not be attractive to everyone and that's ok. So people don't need to comment and say that "They" don't like how the person looks..... I mean what should a strangers opinion matter?
Anyway, this is my little rant over. I'm hoping that everyone who reads my blog never ever writes hate comment to anyone, but also never comments negatively about other people's bodies. Instead use that energy on yourself to live your life, not to hate others!!
