I think most, if not all people are conflicted about something, there is nothing wrong with that. Like-wise people change, as well as change their minds about Life, Love, religion, ...even sexual identity.
I have found that as I mature and my emotional intellect grows many things that I "thought" have changed, many beliefs have changed also. And I accept that, I'm not even the same person I was 6 months ago...Thank GOD!
Don't fear to change or to grow or to evolve.
I had been obese most of My Life and never believed in the "Fat is Beautiful" "Movement" because I felt that the people who were/are pushing it just wanted attention and an excuse NOT to get Healthy, and to bring others into their misguided beliefs. They wanted acceptance from others instead of accepting themselves just as the are. I DO NOT believe in discrimination against the obese or anyone else, but let's face it, Obesity is a Major Health issue and nothing can change that. How "Mean Spirited" people feel about obese people is a separate subject and involves Prejudice...Not Discrimination.
In the "Movement" I wonder if there are 45/50/55/60+ year olds...I would like to know if they are walking w/o pain, and what type of medications they are on...See, when one is under 40 y.o. and feel good, you can take up any cause one chooses, but when you try to get up out of a chair and feel that first "hitch in your giddy-up" or your doctor says I need to talk to you and your partner...shyt changes, thoughts go deeper...At some point you will ask yourself, "Is this a Real cause or am I helping to set others up for an early grave" or cancers or diabetes or... I'm not saying this is right, but maybe not getting that promotion or paying double for an airline seat... will force someone to lose weight/get healthy and will end up giving them a longer-better-happier-healthier Life.
Be Well, Live Well
I Am Most Excellent - Affirmed Only Of GOD.
I wish for You, what I pray for Myself: Wellness, Happiness and Success In ALL Things Good!
Goal: To Follow My Physical Wellnes Plan (Everything Else Will Take Care Of Itself!)
