— What does that term mean?
It is the expectation that people should stay positive to themselves and others, regardless of the circumstance, and any negative energy should be silenced. It is a social trend that advocates for embracing all body types; gender, shape, physical abilities, skin tone, and body size.
Why is this a trend we should leave behind us: what’s the harm of it/why is it unrealistic for some people?
The trend is unacceptable because we need to be honest about our fitness levels, health, and ourselves. Is it a deal? Remember, most people are using this trend to give excuses that compromise healthy habits. The desire to change should be intrinsic- from internal motivation, and not being forced to practice healthy living. Let us be real here; if we accept the fact that people can be healthy at all sizes, where exactly are we heading? Do you know how risky it is for overweight people to suffer heart disease and stroke? What about the medical costs and quality of their life at that point? Well, relying on this trend may be helpful if it pushes you to increase your self-love. But I think when people accept that they are imperfect, it can pressure them to change. As a result, they will inspire curiosity and a natural desire their best possible version.
