With the emergence of social media, we feel that people have become too quick to pass judgments on others. Be it on their body of work or simply about their appearance, tolerance is something which has begun to lack as we move towards an era of technology. With actresses targeted the most for putting on weight or looking bad on a certain day, Lollywood actress and now appearing in plays Sana Fakhar recently decided to address the issue of body shaming on her social media and we for one simply loved her for doing so.
Having been on the heavier side initially in her career it has been recently that Sana has become a fitness freak and where we quite enjoy seeing her work out there was a time when she, in fact, was double the size of what she is now as the actress also put up a picture of herself when fat.
Eager to talk about body shaming and encourage women to love themselves as they were, Sana wrote,
'Why do we have double standards!? Size Zero, 4, 6 or else, why do we have to put a number upon and against people? Why do we have to have to judge everything and everyone against a single standard or benchmark of our own? Why in certain cases, people come out and defend others against body shaming, while in others, they won't? Why can't we let others live and cherish life in their own skin & be comfortable in who they are?
Adding further the actress wrote,
'There would be days when we are overweight, thin or overwhelmed with emotions, enjoy each passing moment, nevertheless. Always trying to motivate others, exercise to have an enjoyable life, instead of being only thin; let them enjoy a lifestyle of fitness which is a comprehensive lifestyle statement not just limited to weight'.
Stressing on the fact how important it was to encourage others, Sana said,
'Our goal should be to encourage others, achieve whatever they want in life. It's not about a particular shape, size or else; it's simply being able to love & enjoy life as you prefer, full of energy & spreading positive energy, whoever you come across in life'.
With us agreeing 100 % with Sana we hope that more and more people will abide by this and refrain from body-shaming someone unnecessarily.
