Monday Morning Rambles: Keep It Real...

This post has been something that I've been wanting to post for a while but I always stopped myself because I didn't want to offend anyone. F it...maybe if I share this, it will help someone and open the lines of communication.

Back in my early 20's, I had a breast reduction and it was one of the best decisions that I made because I was finally able to live. My breast always held me back from trying new things and being an active person. I say this because I want to make it VERY clear that I am not against anyone changing their physical appearance if they feel that they need to or want to. I was very open about my procedure and recommended my surgeon to two of my friends.

I feel that people should be honest about their choices, especially if someone comes to you for advice. One example is when an individual has weight loss surgery and instead of sharing it with their friends, they say "Oh I just started to eat healthier and going to the gym". How do you think that makes your friend feel who truly has been doing those things and is seeing slow progress?

I feel like we have a responsibility to others especially those who are close to us.  I have a friend that recently had breast augmentation and instead of shying away from it; she is sharing her journey on social media. I am not saying that you need to shout it from the roof tops but don't make someone feel less than because they are trying to keep up with your false truth.
