Size Is Just A Number

Your size doesn't dictate your self-worth.

These days, it's impossible for us to fit into society's golden standards of looking #Flawless every second of the day, and constantly maintaining a certain weight to fit a desirable size number. Unfortunately, we are often forced to comply with the general public's idea of "perfect" or "attractive," which normally involves being a size zero. That's not to say that being a size zero isn't beautiful, though. However, fitting into a size ten, thirty, or anything in between doesn't mean you are of any less value or a lesser beauty. Each human being is blessed with an equally amazing body type and whichever size that you fall under shouldn't really matter. A size doesn't dictate our self worth. After all, it is just a number. Just take a look at these inspiring quotes:

"Over the holidays, and even during filming, I realized that I actually like my body, even if it's not perfect according to the book. I just feel sexy. For the first time, I don't want to get rid of the curves. I just want to tone it up. My body is comfortable, and it's not unhealthy, so I'm going to rock with it." —Rihanna


"I'm not ashamed of what I am and that I have curves and that I'm thick. I like my body." —Alicia Keys

"True beauty comes from the soul to change yourself, and to conform to anyone else's standards of beauty, is to change your essence, own who you are, and you become a truly powerful woman." —Ali Tate

It is much more important to focus on other aspects of life, such as the way we choose to treat others even if that may sound cliché. There's just so much more to life than obsessing on how you wish you were a certain size because at the end of the day, your size is do not measure your value as a person.
