Don’t call me brave.
This is just a body
which happens to be mine.
If you saw a post of a slimmer, thinner girl,
maybe a post like this of a model,
Would you call her brave? No.
Just because I have rolls and flab and I choose to share it doesn’t make me brave.
Being “brave” would mean I would be sacrificing or that I am fearful of something.
I found peace with my body and
I choose to share it.
I choose to share my body because I don’t see enough of it represented.
I choose to share my body because there is not enough dark skinned asian women sharing their story.
I choose to do this for my own self love.
So please, don’t call me brave.
