4 ‘Flaws’ Society Says I Have

4 ‘Flaws’ Society Says I Have

The definition of flaw goes like this: “a fault or weakness, especially one that happens while something is being planned or made and that makes it not perfect.” I hate the word ‘perfect.’ I hear all the time how ‘nothing is perfect,’ we live in a world of imperfection but when something fails to be perfect, it’s considered a flaw? Who or what even determines what is perfect? I don’t see a flaw as ‘a fault or weakness.’ I see my flaws as battle wounds and things that make me stronger. Things that make anyone stronger. If someone doesn’t like or appreciate my ‘flaws’ or has something to say about them then that is their loss because they make me who I am.

Dear Personal Trainers/Coaches:

I know you probably don’t have the intention of being cruel or rude when you say certain things but unfortunately they come across this way. I’m not at the gym to get a ‘summer body’ or ‘lose weight’ or ‘tone.’ I am at the gym to live a healthier lifestyle and get energy and frustrations out. I love my body the way it is now and don’t need or want a ‘summer body.’ In fact what does ‘summer body’ even mean? The body I have right now is a ‘summer body’ or ‘bikini body.’ You want to know how I know? Because if I were to put a bikini or bathing suit on right now, I would have a ‘bikini body.’ You do not know my body or what I do day-to-day nor know why I go to the gym so how about you tell me what exercises to do and I will do them to the best of my ability.
