Butternut Posted August 22, 2016 Report Share Posted August 22, 2016 I have a question for pure curiosity for women's points of view and perception and kind of need to get this out. Do you compare yourself to other women and/or judge their bodies? If so how do you handle that criticism in your head? i ask this because I came to this realization several months ago when I saw a woman at a park playing with her kids, I looked at her stomach and made my judgement in my head but a question popped in my head "why am I looking at her body and deciding who she is instead of seeing this woman as a Mother?" Don't get me wrong I know it's not right to judge and I view everyone as equal individuals for who they are, but it's this instant judgement I have when I first look at a woman. When I had that question hit me i noticed it's the first thing I look at in the mirror is my waist, stomach, love handles. I have that judgement to myself. So in these last few months I've stopped my judgement by what the woman is doing. A mother, worker, jogger, etc. since then I find myself looking at myself the same way, I am a mother, an rogue athlete (made that up), and a wife, etc. not by if my belly is bloated or if I look "wide" Am I sounding crazy, am I the only one that (used too) judges women's bodies or is this normal and if so how do you deal with the self talk and criticism? 3 Quote "One should eat to live, not live to eat." -Molaire- "People always forget their hangover" -My dear ol' dad "People are born to live, while some are born to evolve."
