san francisco, style, fashion, travel, lifestyle curated by Ariel Tzu-Chi

Fashion is about projecting where you're going in life.

Therefore, life is fashion, fashion is style.

That's the lifestyle I am producing. 
 

風尚是一種生活品味的投射

因此生活即是風尚,風尚便是品味

這就是我想實踐的生活方式

Body Image


How do you learn how to love yourself and accept that you're far from being likable? There are so many stereotypes out there giving the idea of women should suffer their heart and soul and pursue that beautiful body curve yet at the same time spreading messages encouraging us to accept ourselves as how we are. "All women are beautiful," they said, "just the way they are." But is it really?

Body image is something I've been struggling my whole life. Even at the age of no-time-for-bullshit, I am still clueless about what's beauty. I feel like my notion about beauty has been twisted and I'll never be able to detangle the mess. Not skinny enough; itty bitty titty; no tight gaps; not fit enough; tan or no tan; shave or no shave - there're so many troubles we women go through every single day; not necessarily to please men, but liking oneself is not a easy task.

I'm no one to tell people what's beautiful or to say "love yourself because you worth it". I'm simply sending a message to whoever's reading this: YOU ARE NOT ALONE. On the path of seeking a better version of the sad-me, you're not alone. Old me, new me; same me. 

你們都怎麼練習喜歡自己的呢?這個世界有好多扭曲的觀念告訴女人,必須付出很多去追求美麗,但同時又鼓吹美麗有很多面貌,做自己最美這樣的訊息。老實說,我還真迷失。

一直都在掙扎著接受並喜歡自己的身體,即便到了這個年紀,面對自己依舊始終不滿意。全身上下總是有很多可以挑剔的地方,與別人的眼光無關,而是那一股無法令自己喜歡的想法一旦存在,就很難消彌。要喜歡自己,並不簡單。

我沒什麼資格說做自己好自在的大道理,好聽的話很容易說,但我只是想要說,如果你也在掙扎著愛自己,你不孤單啊。世界上有好人都在浮沈,也都很努力,所以,請不要覺得孤單。
