They put beauty in a box because anything beyond that is too powerful, too bold & too radical. Whether you’re inside or outside of that box, you’re enough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sel#selflove #bopo #selflove #empowerment #feminist #writer #selfworth #allbodiesaregoodbodies #worthy #knowyourworth #powerful #femme #femmmagic #bodylove #curves

I. Am. So. Happy! ~ I live for spontaneous road trips with my love! 💕 ~ I'm from California so I don't see much snow and it's so magical! I'm sure there's many who disagree (who deal with it regularly), but I'm on cloud nine right now and I just had to share! ~ #snow #snowday #lagunamountains #beautiful #scenery #mothernature #moutains #landscape #selfie #fatandhappy #fatlife #allbodiesaregoodbodies #getoutside #love #cold #plussizelife #fatbabe #fatpositive #livinglife #roadtrip

While I believe editing colors can be a form of artistic expression or personal brand (I love to play with the composition of photos sometimes like this one), it’s important to recognize that these filters only showcase one’s existing beauty in a different light. You should never feel like you need a filter on you in order for you to feel beautiful or have it be “insta-worthy”. . To me, the biggest issue with social media is photoshopping body parts. It’s becoming easier (& harder to detect) people enhancing their face, their waist size, arms, breasts, & butt. . This is especially hard on younger kids who are impressionable and don’t always realize what is photoshopped. They are often comparing their self-worth to perfectly filtered, perfectly edited bodies, and seemingly perfect lives. These feelings of inadequacy from photoshopped images combined with the existing pressures of growing up anyway, make it hard for them to feel comfortable in their own bodies. . So how do we flip the script and make social media a safer area for everyone and especially kids? We all do our part to make it a more genuine and real atmosphere. I will NEVER edit my body, but if I even post fun filtered pictures like this, I’ll make sure to post the before. 😊 . If filters and editing your body is the only way you feel beautiful, I encourage you to take some space with social media & reflect on if it’s healthy for your well being and body image. ❤️
