Mermaid or Whale
aka: Thick or Thin
It is a personal perspective
This was shared with me. I have no
idea who is the original author.
A while back, at the entrance of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and beautiful woman. The caption was "This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?"
The story goes, a woman (of clothing size unknown) answered the following way.
Dear people, whales (are):
~ always surrounded by friends (dolphins, seals, curious humans).
~ sexually active and raise their children with great tenderness.
~ entertain like crazy with dolphins and eat lots of prawns.
~ swim all day and travel to fantastic places like Patagonia, the Barents Sea or the coral reefs of Polynesia.
~ sing incredibly well and sometimes even are on cds.
~ impressive and dearly loved animals, which everyone defends and admires.
Mermaids do not exist. But if they existed:
~ they would line up to see a psychologist because of a problem with split personality: woman or fish?
~ they would have no sex life and could not bear children.
~ Yes, they would be lovely, but lonely and sad.
And, who wants a girl that smells like fish by his side?
Without a doubt, I'd rather be a whale. At a time when the media tells us that only thin is beautiful, I prefer to eat ice cream with my kids, to have dinner with my husband, to eat and drink and have fun with my friends.
As women, we gain weight because we accumulate so much wisdom and knowledge that there isn't enough space in our heads, and it spreads all over our bodies. We are not fat, we are greatly cultivated. Every time I see my curves in the mirror, I tell myself: How amazing am I ?!
