Just when I thought I would power down the computer for the night, I came across a damn fine post, “Monday Megalomania–Picture of a Fat Girl” written by Christin Haws on her blog. All I can say is THANK YOU to Christin, for finding a poignant way to discuss what it means not only to be yourself, but to love yourself for the person that you are and not who society says you should be.
I could paraphrase Christin’s post, but you should head over to her site and check it out yourself. Through her words, I saw myself; and for once I really felt it was okay to be me and to love me. Don’t worry, not going to get all weepy over here, but talk about reading something refreshing. If writing is supposed to evoke emotion and in the end affect change, then Christin succeeded on both levels.
