Default Re: Aesthetics of Guilt

I find it interesting how many different types of guilt are associated with the full-figured aesthetic. I wasn't raised in a religious home, so the idea of sin wasn't what I associated with my body. I was, however, raised in a home that was very hostile towards women larger than a size 6. The guilt I associated with my body type was because I was made to believe I was unattractive. I was told that no one would want me and that I was an embarrassment to my family. I carried this shame around for years. Many women are never able to let go of it and embrace themselves. But if we don't find a way to celebrate ourselves, how will the next generation of girls learn to do so?
