BEDA Weight Stigma Awareness Week- Day 2: #ExpressYourself

Posted By Kantorlaw || 25-Sep-2012

Day two of BEDA's National Weight Stigma Awareness Week illuminates self expression. With so much emphasis on the body, it's important for people to reflect upon how the mind, body, and soul blend together. It's imperitive that we challenge damaging ways of forming surface opinions, and move deeper into understanding each person as a whole, regardless of body shape or type.

Take a moment today to think about how weight stigma has influenced your life.

"Soul. The word rebounded to me, and I wondered, as I often had, what it was exactly. People talked about it all the time, but did anybody actually know? Sometimes I'd pictured it like a pilot light burning inside a person--a drop of fire from the invisible inferno people called God. Or a squashy substance, like a piece of clay or dental mold, which collected the sum of a person's experiences--a million indentations of happiness, desperation, fear, all the small piercings of beauty we've ever known."
