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.
do you ever get an overwHELMING RUSH OF POSITIVE FEELINGS TOWARD SOMEONE FOR NO REASON??? LIKE THEY DON’T DO ANYthING BUT YOU JUST SUDDENLY REALIzE HOW MUCh yoU LOVE THEM AND YOU CANT HOLD IT BACK???????????? i gotTA TELl yoU HOW MUch I ADORE AND ADMIRE YOU AND U CAnT STOP ME
I want to learn! My grandmother makes beautiful table runners and things. is it quick to pick up?
i think it’s pretty easy? i’ve completed two projects in maybe 2 and a half weeks?
if you do wanna start i’d recommend a medium sized hook (the headband i just made is made with a 5 mm hook which i’d call medium) and yarn appropriate for that size hook in a bright colour bc it’ll make your stitches easier to se. it’s really fun!
it’s so much fun! idk it doesn’t feel like i do it a lot at all
WHAT A CUTE FACE! AND GREAT WORK!
