Having a perfect figure is a life goal for everyone, regardless of gender. Most men strive to keep six-pack abs, whilst women prefer to stay younger despite having to fulfill the roles of wife, mother, and even grandma. The majority of the time, people wear body fit clothes to conceal their abnormally large abs. Why, though? Isn’t it beneficial to be normal?
Irais Cadena from Chihuahua, Mexico, uses Facebook to address the issue of “Perfectionism.” She believes that even if a woman isn’t flawless, she can still be powerful and beautiful with what she has. So Sarah Nicole Landry, a mother of three, brought it up, and it went viral.
Irais Cadena from Chihuahua, Mexico addresses the issue of “Being Perfect” by posting pictures to Facebook. She is having the mindset about women as without being perfect every woman can be strong and beautiful with what they have. So Sarah Nicole Landry, a mother of three children has highlighted the fact and it went viral.
Recently, a Facebook post went viral for its celebration of strong women who celebrate their bodies
Landry is accepting herself as it is while she is giving a strong message for the women who are worrying about the figure. As per Landry, “I don’t recall when body issues became mainstream in my mind but I have early memories around age 11-12 where they started to take over my self-worth, I did my first diet at age 14, and it would continue off and on through ’til adulthood.
The things went upside down where she was going through a divorce. So everyone was congrats and talking about her thinness. But inside of the Landry felt uncomfortable about their views. She expressed as “I realized that I had to face the fact that weight loss didn’t make me happy, and I needed to find a balance for me and my body, for a lifestyle I could love and a body I could celebrate even as it changed.”
She continues as “I really had believed that losing weight would be the way for me to find body acceptance so I sought that strongly about 5-6 years ago. After losing around 100lbs, I was devastated to discover that I still had body image issues, perhaps even worse than before. Since then, I’ve worked through my issues around self-worth, disordered eating, and my confidence and have journeyed through that process online.”
The thoughts she got through the online communities enhance and prove her statements. Online communities of women have really helped her as well. “Once I started following such a diverse group of women and men online, it really opened up my eyes to how different beauty is and how it’s really about who you are and not what you look like!”
It was inspired by the perfect example, a mother-of-three by the name of Sarah Nicole Landry
