Keep it up! : )
V: 3 big dreams - I want to be able to truly and fully love myself someday. I want to dress without thinking, eat without being ashamed, and live my life with joy. Once I’ve reached that point I’d really like to start a center for girls/boys with the same problems, struggles, and issues. Finally, my biggest dream would be to confront the ones that so horribly toyed with my mind and emotions, and let them know, they didn’t kill me.
W: - My biggest idol right now would have to be Crystal Renn. She was once suffering from an eating disorder and anorexia and now she’s a plus size model. Her story and journey and recovery are super inspirational and beautiful.
“I always feel like I’m struggling to become someone else. Like I’m trying to find a new place, grab hold of a new life, a new personality. I guess it’s part of growing up, yet it’s also an attempt to reinvent myself. By becoming a different me, I could free myself of everything. I seriously believed I could escape myself- as long as I made the effort. But I always hit a dead end. No matter where I go, I still end up me. What’s missing never changes. The scenery may change, but I’m still the same old incomplete person. The same missing elements torture me with a hunger that I can never satisfy. I guess that lack itself is as close as I’ll come to define myself.”—Haruki Murakami (via selfinspiration)
“Rape isn’t a ‘natural hazard’ like a cliff edge that women must be careful to avoid when drunk - it is a willful act of violence perpetrated by another human being and the responsibility lies with the perpetrator not the victim. Drinking alcohol is not illegal or wrong. Perpetrators are in control of their actions. A woman is never responsible for a man raping her. But society’s morals and logic currently display a yogic ability to bend over backwards to accommodate, accept, and normalize the reality of violence against women. Studies show that people who display high levels of sexism are more likely to accept the idea that women can be to blame when a man rapes them. This propensity to blame victims and often to absolve the perpetrators allows the cultures that breed sexist violence to go unchallenged. Victim-blaming must also end for the real cause of sexist violence—gender inequality—to come into full view.”—Kat Banyard, The Equality Illusion (2010)
The things I post have NOTHING to do with trying to persuade people into thinking that only curvy women are beautiful. I think all women are beautiful, in some way. No person is ‘ugly’. There are beautiful traits, personalities, features, smiles, etc. in every single person.
I merely post these things because I am struggling to find love within myself. I am not beautiful because I’m curvy or thick or big.
I’m beautiful because I’m Kalea Molloy. You are beautiful because you’re you.
“We don’t owe anyone an explanation when it comes the choices we make about appearance. Yet here we are, dieting and sweating and cutting and spritzing and waxing and sucking and shooting and plucking, hoping to look less like ourselves and more like Halle Berry or Angelina Jolie or Anna Kournikova, thinking our problems will be solved. I’ll never understand why some men fear fat and strength and pixie cuts; it has nothing to do with them. Wait – maybe that’s exactly the problem. I appreciate beauty. I love feeling beautiful. And there are many ways for me to do that.”—
