I’m in the middle of compiling a new video that focuses on the unattainable goal – as well as the unrealistic qualities and frustration that occurs within that same realm that is hardly discussed in advertising.
Fitness Industries in particular constantly throw this idea out there of what a good body looks like as a way to ‘inspire’ those of us working towards to unattainable goal, but they only show bodies that are truly unattainable.
Maybe those bodies are photoshopped, maybe those people are genetically gifted. Maybe working out 6 times a week and eating the right things aren’t enough. Maybe we can never aspire to actually be those people on instagram.
Even when someone does choose to compete in body building shows, they can actually only have that body for a max of one to two weeks.. followed my a spiral of depression because it seems it’s fading away fast.
Frustration. Anger. Unachievable. You are beautiful and good enough for just trying. You are good enough for just treating your body right.
