In order to change and grow, we must step out of our comfort zone, so today I am going to share my #boobtruth .
This is a sensitive topic for me, one that I have never discussed out loud, my boobs. As a kid I waited for my boobs to come and they never did. I saw other girls being teased because they were flat chested and tried my best to go unnoticed, but amongst my family and close friends, it’s always been a joke. I have always wanted to be the girl who only wears sports bras, but they made me look completely flat chested, or highlighted my what I felt at the time were enormous nipples; and so I often wore two bras for extra padding and a little boob.
Fast forward, 2 children later and growing from an A cup to a D and back down, I learned that my boobs are powerful. They sustained the life of 2 children over 4 years combined. As a new mother Faced with hungry, screaming babies who do not care about your insecurities or judge you for them, I began pulling out my boobs for the world to see, it was a new me!
Today, I am still self conscious when I put on a tight shirt, bikini, dress, or sports bra; but then I remember that my boobs are so much more then their looks. In western culture, breasts have been reduced to sexuality and not empowered for all that they are.
My goal as a mother, teacher, role model, and mentor is to share my story to help us create a community of support and real ness and to stop judging and start supporting one another.
Big or small, boobs are strong and mighty. They get the job done. For that I am thankful.
