Spend enough time on this planet, and you’ll notice that everywhere you turn, society is telling you to fix yourself.
Especially around New Year’s, when so many people set resolutions or goals, messages like “this is the year to finally lose weight and love yourself” are ubiquitous.
It. Drives. Me. Crazy.
The implication in that message is that losing weight is the path to loving yourself. You’re only going to love yourself if you lose 5, 10, 50, 150 pounds.
That’s ridiculous. Not to mention completely untrue.
