27 Apr Cassey Ho responds to shaming and bullying with this powerful video
JUAN SAYS: We have been pressed on hardcore body issues this week with the release of The Dancer and The Rebirth of a Former Fat Girl, and we’re not stopping at anytime soon. We believe that it’s important for women to love the body that they were blessed with.
We always think that we need to work hard in order to achieve the perfect body but what if we do and we still have our flaws? Here’s a video on the perfect body by the popular You Tube fitness star, Cassey Ho.
This might change your mind about fitness and hopefully, yourself.
Cassey elaborates on what led her to create the video:
When you look in the mirror, are you happy with what you see? Or do you stare at yourself, pinching your fat away, lifting up your butt, pushing in your boobs? It’s hard to be content with the shape of your body when people are constantly telling you how fat you are, how much weight you need to lose, how much weight you need to gain . . . what do people want? The body shaming, the mean comments, the cyber bullying — all of this messes with us . . . and it hurts.
So what if I changed? What if I had a slimmer waist and a bigger butt? Would everyone be happy then?
JUAN SAYS: This video reminds us that in whatever form we are in, we are beautiful in our own way. Working out is about being healthy and strong, never about being perfect. You may not have a tiny waist, nor bigger boobs. Flaws are all over your face, especially the lack of a high bridged nose. Have the courage to drown out the voices of other people who say that you have to change. You make the changes for yourself, not for other people. You don’t work on your body to make other people happy. But you work on your body because you know that it is what is good for you. Ang ganda nga ng katawan mo, basura naman ang ugali mo. Di bale na lang din.
