I say anyone who lacks what the general public may call “The Perfect Body”, but can still tick all of the following boxes:
- eats well
- doesn’t drink alcohol
- exercises frequently
…actually does have the perfect body.
First of all, a perfect body is in the eye of the beholder; what’s perfect for one is not perfect for another. No one can, and no one ever should try to please everyone—just be your best self and you’re perfect, perfect for you and those who care about you.
To me, this means if you’re doing the best you can, then you are the best you can be, period. This also means if you’re not doing the best you can—if you’re fat, lazy, eating poorly and drinking excessively, you’re not even close to doing the best you can, so you’ll never be the best you can be.
Because of this outlook, I find people who don’t look after themselves really disappointing. I think it’s because I believe there is only one life and it should not be wasted; wasting such a free and beautiful gift as a sound mind and a sound body truly disgusts me.
I honestly don’t find fat people disgusting, and I don’t find the body image of fat people disgusting. It has nothing to do with appearance.
It’s actually what’s on the inside that disgusts me—I find the mentality that most fat people have is disgusting, just as much as the Next Top Model with a disgusting attitude would be. People who don’t look after themselves, look for help, get that help and then come up with excuses not to use that help make me even sadder, and people who pass on their lazy, uncaring habits to their children are the worst, because they take two truly beautiful things—their own life, and their child’s life—and completely destroy both.
People that don’t look after themselves really disgust me, I think it’s because there is only one life and it should not be wasted, wasting such a beautiful gift just truly disgusts me.
I know I’ve now said this a lot. Should you be scared of me because of what I’ve said, know that I try not to judge, but even if I would, it would require me to get to know you better. I’ll also say that if you feel like I’m talking about you, even without meeting you, I also have some understanding…
I do understand how some people can get in a bad situation, where they just don’t care anymore. I do understand how something can develop without you wanting it to, step-by-step going down and down…but I know that, step-by-step it can also go up, no matter what your age or condition.
People that don’t look after themselves, look for help, get that help and then come up with excuses make me even sadder.
Send this to someone who could do with hearing this.
As long as they’re the best they can be, normal and without extremes. But, none of the above should ever become a standard.
Should you be scared of me because of what I said above, no, I try not to judge, but even if I would, it would require me to get to know you better first.
Lets talk about the perfect body of my wife: she doesn’t think it’s perfect, neither do some others—but she works out, eats extremely healthy in moderate portions, doesn’t drink (well, nearly nothing), and she’s truly the best she can be and still strives to be better each day, proving there is always improvement that can be made. Never give up!
To her I devote this article, Anna Junghans.
Perfect, as nature intended her to be.
Please like and share for those who think they’re not perfect.
