Certamente você fez uma comparação em sua mente quando você está olhando para a estranha conta do Instagram entre o que você publicou e o que você deixou em sua pasta de fotos. A conta de Chessie é o exemplo vivo do que a maioria de seus seguidores, e até mesmo você, faz.
Instagram VS Realidade
De repente, somos todos perfeitos, atraentes e magros nas fotos que enviamos para as redes sociais. A mais famosa aplicação instantânea do mundo criou sem perceber um lado de superficialidade e adoração do corpo que, em excesso, caímos em tentações como a de falsificar a realidade.
‘GOALS’ – a term we see errrryday on this Instagram thaang 💁🏼♀️ It’s amazing how different my goals are to a few years ago. All I cared about was being the leanest I could be, never missing a gym session, sticking to a ‘meal plan’ that took all the love out of food & … these are NOT ‘life goals’, these are restrictive & no fun 🙅🏼♀️ – I would never ever of been brave enough to put the right photo up back then but your gal has changed… my main goal now is to be as happpy as I can possibly be & that means feeling as comfortable as I can be in my own skin. I was about to film a little video about my skin this afternoon (that red lil’ cheek!), I looked down & saw my tummy. I would’ve been disgusted a few years ago & would’ve put a top on to cover it up, but I gave it a little jiggle & smiled. It may not look like the left (which was only a few months ago) but I really couldn’t care less. I’ve said this before but my happiest times in life have been with my family, with my bestfriends, with Mat, none of them have been about my body or how I look. So tonight, have a think & write down a few of your favourite memories & remember how amazing you felt in those moments. Live to make more of those & stop wasting time looking at that Instagram profile thinking they’re ‘goals’ ❤️🧡💛
Chessie mostra a seus 367.000 seguidores precisamente a decepção a que nos acostumamos quando compartilhamos a genialidade de nosso corpo. Nem todos somos tão perfeitos, nem todos mantemos essa aparência, nem, é claro, a imagem pendurada não é a primeira que clicamos em nossa câmera móvel.
Não é sempre a primeira foto tirada que publicamos, nós sempre procuramos capturar uma melhor foto em um outro ângulo, visando melhorar a nossa imagem.
O relato dessa menina é uma comparação que ela lançou em seu próprio corpo depois da infindável crítica de seus seguidores chamando-a de gorda, mesmo quando ela não é. Recrie a imagem que nunca seria enviada para esta rede de culto ao corpo e a foto que todos gostaríamos de publicar. O resultado é descaradamente diferente.
Ya feel me?! 🙋🏼♀️ 1st January: “I’m going to be such a health goddess this year. Broccoli for breakfast, training errrryday” 🥦 3rd January: *faceplanting a tub of ice cream* “SOMEBODY STAP ME” 🍦 The number one resolution made is ‘losing weight/getting fit’… strict resolutions = pressure = guilt if you don’t stick to them = feeling sad AND NO ONE LIKES FEELING SAD. Who’s joined me on the ‘I’VE NOT MADE ANY RESOLUTIONS THIS YEAR BECAUSE I BREAK THEM IN 3 DAYS” 🚂 Lets say NO to restriction, NO to fad diets, NO to juice detoxes, NO to skinny teas & YES TO EVERYTHING THAT MAKES US HAPPPPPPY 🍿
Outro dos clássicos do Instagram é o milagre da academia . Quantos seguidores carregam uma foto que normalmente sempre intitula ‘começa o biquíni de operação’ ou ‘bunda com a academia’. As diferenças entre esses tipos de fotos são estrondosas.
HOW IS BODYSHAMING STILL HAPPENING? 🤷🏼♀️ I hate giving negative comments air time but it infuriates me to see ‘you’re too fat to wear those trousers’ on a recent post of mine. It doesn’t upset me AT ALL it just makes me angry that there are still humans out there that feel the need to comment on someone’s body in a negative way. When I was the size I was in the left photo I had people telling me I was ‘too thin’ & ‘needing feeding up’. It is unacceptable either way, ‘too thin’ or ‘too fat’ 🙅🏼 I use my platform to support girls & guys from all ages, I share my stories, I tell my journey & I try to help people. I have never once scrolled down my Instagram feed & thought ‘oh she’s too thin’ or ‘she’s too fat’, I don’t know how people can even think in such a derogatory way. Let’s put an end to this & let’s start talking more positively about the qualities in someone that actually mean something. What about calling someone kind, loving, brave, clever…? And last thing, PLEASE promise me, you will never ever ever let a negative comment like that get to you because it is a waste of time & you are SO much better than that 💃🏼
Smooth skin, peachy booty, small waist, thin thighs… you can have it all in just 30 seconds of editing 💁🏼♀️ It’s scary how easily & quickly you can change your body on some of these apps. @lydiaxcollins & I had a play round to see how ‘modern day perfect’ we could make me look but still making it look ‘real’. Instagram can be so encouraging & inspiring but it’s also a ‘perfection’ trap 95% of the time & it can be so unhealthy & it still effects me. I want you to be able relate to me & look at my body & know it’s achievable. I want you to see me & know I look exactly the same in real life as I do on here. Yes people work extremely hard for their bodies & some people do look like the right but the rest of us gals should not have to feel like sh🍌t if we don’t 💃🏼 Sending allllll my love to anyone that’s compared themselves to another human today or wished they looked like that person on Instagram. You’re beautiful, in your own unique way ❤️🧡💛
Posturas impossíveis, fotos de câmera perfeitamente estudadas e jogos de luz dignos dos pintores do passado. E tudo por um punhado de ‘curtidas’.
