Fat pride!


Just wanted to give a shout out to my fat friends. You all have taught me more about pride, respect, self-acceptance and not putting up with other people's bigotted bullshit than all my years in the LGBT community. I think that says a LOT about what kind of people you are. Thank you all! :)

I think self acceptance is important as the basis for changing anything you might or might not want to change. My bf (as opposed to my DH) took me to see Carol King and James Taylor. And Carol sang "You got to get up every morning with a smile on your face and show the world all the love in your heart..." and I realized that it's about showing the world (and yourself). You have to show it. I may be delusional (probably am) but it seems that I am being flirted with a lot. And I haven't lost an ounce lately so it has to do with showing the world.

If you are gay (or straight) you are a child of God beautiful inside (and outside for some). What is in need of accepting? I find it incredible that you need self-acceptance, for heaven sakes, unless you are fooling me, you're a hottie with a hot bf. I must be missing something. However hottie or not, you have a beautiful creative soul, what is there to accept? Accept that you are gifted and talented, beautiful and awesome? I've gone and confused myself. But you helped.

Thanks for propping up with self-accepting. It's like you accepting - validating. That's nice.

Glad I could help confuse you! :)

Honestly, it's because I have been blessed with the ability to choose quality friends like these that I have the self-esteem I have (and I do have it!). I was just thanking them for being the wise, wonderful friends they are, and letting them know that just by living their lives the way they do, it continually inspires me to not only be a better person, but it reminds me to love myself for who and what I am and not let others' judgements affect me (well, at least not as much as they should). Am I fat, myself? Well, I sure ain't skinny and 26 anymore, and I certainly could use more exercise to keep myself healthy, but otherwise I'm just fine. :) Any self-improvement will come from within and with Q, not from others making judgements of me, that's for sure.
