Blogger de fitness que decidiu deixar de se depilar há três anos mostra os resultados obtidos

Uma conhecida blogger decidiu parar de fazer a depilação aos seus pelos corporais e três anos após ter tomado essa decisão, decidiu mostrar ao mundo os resultados.

Morgan Mikenas está a lutar contra a pressão social que é incutida nas mulheres para que elas estejam constantemente depiladas e, assim, encoraja as pessoas a fazerem somente aquilo que lhes dá o máximo de conforto possível. Ela diz que não quer voltar mais a fazer a depilação…

If culture shifted to a place where the youth could freely be themselves without fear of being ostracized, think of what that would mean for the way we view our own body image and self worth. Remember back to the time in our lives when we were sexually maturing, and imagine what it would’ve meant for us if we didn’t feel ashamed of the changes our body/self was going through, and we could be confident in the person we are becoming, without the fear of not being good enough in society’s eyes. By having a young person modify themselves to fit into a cultural standard at such a confusing time in their life, puts people into a position to be less accepting of themselves. I hope to create movement towards a new trend for the next generations, so that we won’t have any reason to feel ashamed of who we are as we mature through life. I beat myself up for not feeling good enough as a young girl(for things that shouldn’t of mattered), and I hope by spreading awareness of my own experience, I can help others prevent feeling like they have to hold themselves back from who they want to be/ who they are.💙Do what you want, and do what feels right for you. Don’t let anyone make you feel bad about who you are and the decisions you make. You are you, and being you is enough. I love you.💙#havenofear #beyou #iloveyou #namaste #gratitude #selflove #bodypositive #acceptance #weareone

Num vídeo que colocou no Youtube, chamado “Why I Don’t Shave”, ela explicou:

“Eu acho que a primeira razão que me fez parar foi o facto de demorar imenso tempo. Demorava mesmo muito tempo na banheira a depilar-me toda. Certo dia, pensei: ‘porque é que ainda faço isto?’ e acabei por parar.

Depois, os pelos começaram a crescer e eu apercebi-me que aquilo até era giro. Os pelos são fofinhos e quando te depilas, ficas cheia de comichão e é desconfortável. Aí, vi outra razão”.

Ela tem recebido muito apoio pela sua decisão mas ainda assim, alguns não entendem onde é que ela chegar e criticam-na pelas suas decisões.

A modelo de fitness partilha fotografias constantemente no Instagram e não tem qualquer tipo de pudor ou vergonha em mostrar-se como está:

What do you do when you meet eyes with your reflection? Do you look away quickly, afraid or what you might see? Or do you stare into your eyes in search of something deeper? What you see is a direct reflection of all that your are, can be, will be. I beg you, please stop being so hard on yourself. Stop letting others opinions make you question your worth. You decide. You choose to see your strength. Look at yourself, honestly. You should be proud of how far you have come! What do you see when you see your reflection? I see someone who is comfy in their own skin, and is just so grateful to be here and get to live the human experience. Your mind can play tricks on you if you let it. Don’t let it only see the “ugly”. Stop your negative self talk by asking yourself, “ why does this make me feel this way?” We are creatures of habit, so make it a habit to believe in yourself and not let anything get in the way of your happiness🌞💫#selflove #feelgood #bethechange #namaste #gratitude #spreadlove #bodyhairdontcare #comfy #selfcare #word #divingdeep #reflection #loveandlight #mentalhealth
