I was talking to my brother about women’s attitudes towards their bodies, especially regarding weight/fat, and when he said “most guys don’t notice/care about that kind of thing,” I tried to explain why it was a lot more complicated than that. I ended up telling this story.
Body image is something that’s so hard to talk about, and it’s hard to express body positivity without sounding cheesy, false, or overly simplistic. But I’m gonna try. This is only my own experience, and it didn’t magically cure me of all my body image issues - but it was a major turning point for me nonetheless.
A while ago, I penned a fairly angry response to something circulating on the internet – the 21 Habits of Happy People. It pissed me off beyond belief, that there was an inference that if you weren’t Happy, you simply weren’t doing the right things.
I’ve had depression for as long as I can…
Anonymous asked: This might be stupid but what does Never claim Gucci as you mean? I missed something and now everyone's ahead of me and I'm left out in the cold.
"Don’t ever claim Gucci as you" is a thing Zayn Malik said a couple years ago. In context, during an interview, Louis Tomlinson was trying to say that GUCCI by Gucci was his cologne of choice, but as we all know, GUCCI by Gucci is of course Zayn’s signature scent. In order to establish his domination over being the ultimate GUCCI by Gucci wearer, Zayn spoke the now infamous incantation, "DON’T EVER CLAIM GUCCI AS YOU." Louis emitted an earth-shattering cry from his cavernous hellmouth. His skin turned inside out and shed itself from his skeleton and it pooled on the ground. His true form was revealed: he was a dracula this entire time. He knew he was defeated and he flew through the window in fright and despair. Shards of glass flew everywhere, stabbing out the eyes of ONE DIRECTION. But not Zayn’s, for his eyes were protected by his powerful aura of Gucci musk. GUCCI by Gucci was claimed once again for the Malik Bloodline.
"Don’t ever claim Gucci as you" is a lifestyle. "Don’t ever claim Gucci as you" is a choice. "Don’t ever claim Gucci as you" is a fundamental right and an earned privilege. ”Don’t ever claim Gucci as you” is your OUTLOOK EXPRESS email signature. “Don’t ever claim Gucci as you” is how you answer your phone. “Don’t ever claim Gucci as you” is every answer to every test or job interview question. “Don’t ever claim Gucci as you” is what the dots and the freckles on your cheeks spell out when they’re joined up. It means CONFIDENCE and ESTEEM WITHIN YOURSELF. It means you can walk down the street and know who you are. It means nobody can snatch your essence off you. It means you’re the most and beyond and everyone around you is a trash can into which you vomit all the world’s bullshit. It means you’re a fucking bomb ass bad bitch with the attitude of a glamorous deadly cloud. It means your guts are as beautiful as your face. You’re it. You are GUCCI by Gucci. You are Gucci. You’re you. Nobody else will ever be Gucci. Don’t ever claim Gucci as you.
