Have you ever been put down, hurt, or abused? Is your self-esteem in ditch and you desperately wanted to reclaim it? Have you had a life long struggle with allowing others to shape your opinions of yourself? Or are you just tired of people thinking that they have the right to do these things to another human being? I have and this past year I decided enough was enough and from my frustrations… When I thought I was fat was born!
Launched in November of 2015, When I thought I was fat was started in the hopes that sharing my story would help those who struggle with low self-esteem and/or abuse. This blog talks about the abuses I have faced over my life and my constant fight against with low self-esteem and self-worth. No one should have to live thinking they aren’t good enough for anything in life. This blog space is a refuge for expressing thoughts against the “status quo.” I want this space to feel like a community and by that I mean all my wonderful readers.
What do I mean by this?
I’d love your contributions!
I don’t want to be the only one standing up in front of the room talking, but I will if you want me too… I love to talk!
With that said, have you ever found yourself saying the words… “I wish I was the weight I was when I thought I was fat?” You did? Then please share your story with me! If you feel so inclined to share your story I would love to guest spotlight you on my blog. You can send me a message through the contact page for information on how you can contribute.
Ongoing topic ideas include:
- When was the first time you thought you were fat? What did you do about it? Share some photos with us!
- Fat people can’t wear stripes… but you love stripes… so wear it! Do what scares you! It is the best way to break free from society’s chains. Then come and share your story with us!
- Weight issues are heavily put on women’s shoulders but everyone has body image issues. I’d love to hear from all you men out there!
- Have you even been in an abusive relationship? How has is affected your self-esteem? What ways have you tried to build yourself back up?
I can help. I’ve been there. I’ve thought that I was fat since the age of six! Yet when I look at photos of myself younger and photos of myself now I’m like I WISH!
The title “When I thought I was fat” is not a statement about my denial of being a fat person. I know I am fat. It is more a statement against other people telling me so my whole life. I wasted too much of my life worrying about what others thought of me. I didn’t take time to worry about what I thought of me. Do things that brought me joy and happiness. Now I am doing it! You’re reading it… my life in blog goggles!
So come stay and follow me and join me on this journey!
