健身紅人Kelsey Wells 的告白 : 我們拒絕隱藏自己,不成為大眾喜歡的樣子!

 

在這個審美標準嚴格的世代,要當好一位女性真的不容易,想要符合大眾對「美」的要求,不僅要克制飲食,時刻注意體態,最好養成運動健身的習慣,不僅瘦還要有線條。

而現在「看起來看壯」竟也成了女性身材被檢討的原因,一名健身教練因為身形精實,受到網友批評,而她也在前幾天決定霸氣回覆這些負面留言。

 

為什麼肌肉結實的女生就是「太Man?」

Instagram 健身紅人 Kelsey Wells 因為美麗外貌、健美身材和樂觀開朗的性格受到粉絲喜愛,看起來相當完美的她,卻坦言自己不斷受到部分酸民批評。

「你看起來太Man了」、「不要再練了,你現在看起來很大隻」、「練舉重很沒女人味」,這些帶有歧視女性的刻板評論讓Kelsey非常不解,並決定親自回應這些留言。

Ya know that little voice inside your head telling you YOU CAN? You know, the one that pops up with an idea that you usually just automatically shut down cause for some ridiculous reason so many of us seem to be intrinsically programmed to think "I can't." ?? I'm talking about that part of you that dreams big. That visualizes success. That's saying "damn girl you GOT this" and telling you to GO FOR IT!?!? Well listen to THAT voice! Babes the truth is that it takes the same amount of thought and energy to feed negativity as it does to breed positivity. So simply CHOOSE yourself. CHOOSE to be your own biggest fan and CHOOSE to get on team with YOUR goals. I know it's not always easy, but THAT is where self love starts. CHOOSE TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. ? www.kelseywells.com/app

她表示,有許多熱愛運動和從事健身產業的女性友人都曾收過這樣的攻擊,也道出現在社會對女人苛刻的審美標準:「身為女人,常有人指著我們的鼻子高談闊論,應該怎麼做才能看起來漂亮又女性化。」

很多人為了怕受到異樣眼光,只能隱藏真正的自己,改變成大眾喜歡的樣子,「努力生活,做自己喜歡的事情,並為所愛全心全意付出,才是女人最美麗的模樣!

 

 

Kelsey表示,自已以前也和大家認知中的「漂亮女生」一樣,追求纖細並且時常化妝打扮,但自從接觸運動之後,她發現在健身房裡因為運動而汗水淋漓、發出低吼,這種筋疲力盡的模樣,反而更美麗。

只要是做自己喜歡的事,舉重也跟跳芭蕾舞一樣能有100%的美麗和女人味。

 

 

專注在你認為自己很漂亮的時刻就夠了

已經是一個小男孩母親的她,也肯定女人不管從事什麼職業都是偉大且迷人的。「追求事業很美、家庭主婦很美、喜歡寫作很美、熱愛唱歌很美……,與外貌無關,只要是你真正喜歡的事情都是美麗的。

她也呼籲女性們不要為了迎合他人放棄做自己,「放下外界的看法與社會的審美標準,專注在你認為自己很漂亮的時刻就夠了。

FOCUS ON YOUR STRENGTHS. We all have weaknesses and imperfections. We all have ways we can do and be better or things we want to improve. But I've found the less I focus on those and the more I instead put my energy into what I'm doing RIGHT or things I like about myself (in motherhood, fitness, just life in general), one of two things usually happens — my weaknesses automatically become stronger along the way, or I come to terms with them and stop seeing them as "weaknesses" or imperfections in the first place. We are all DIFFERENT and we are meant to be! Comparison is poison — be YOU! That thing you're fixating on or down on yourself about could be keeping you from excelling in what you actually are meant to be doing. This isn't meant to say we shouldn't set goals or push ourselves to grow and change in a healthy way. But I can guarantee you if the place from which that "goal" or change you are seeking is stemming from is one of comparison or negative self talk, you gotta let it go. Be true to yourself. Be kind to yourself and let SELF LOVE and PASSION be the driving force for change in your life. That's when you'll find success. THAT will take you where you need and want to go.???✨ www.kelseywells.com/app

Kelsey的這番見解起引發網友強烈共鳴,「每個職業婦女都應該來看這篇」、「謝謝你的分享,決定成為你的粉絲!」。也有網友可愛的為他抱不平「你這樣很美啊!誰說你很Man的?叫他打給我!」、「拜託,我超想變得跟你一樣,這樣才美好嗎!」。

Kelsey教會我們對自己有自信,不管外界怎麼說,只要活得快樂,美麗就會隨之而來。
