Today's video is about body image and the struggles of not feeling perfect in a world that spends most of its time telling us we're not, to sell products of different sorts.
And right away I need to address the comments saying that "I don't know the struggle of not fitting in". And this pisses me off so fucking much. No, I am not overweight. I don't know the struggles of someone who is overweight. But can you not just fucking respect my feelings and understand that life is not a competition of who's got it worse??
On my YouTube channel I talk from my perspective about stuff I know and stuff I feel. Is that really so difficult to grasp? I'm making an effort to share how I feel about myself and show that we all struggle, big or small, people are always fighting their own battles. And just 'cause you see me in a certain way doesn't give you the right to judge me and say that my struggle is meaningless, just like I have no right to say that you're not struggling at all with whatever weight you're at, or whatever else is on your mind.
The whole point of this video is to inspire people in a positive way to see the beauty in themselves. And I cannot sit and say that without sharing my own shortcomings and feelings on the subject. I can't sit there and preach about loving yourself when I struggle with it as well.
As always, if you don't like it don't watch it.
