We all have a list of certain, little habits that people do that we hate. Like absolutely just can't stand. These are the pet peeves that make you cringe by just imagining them. Since everyone is different, I'm sure not everyone has the same pet peeves. But for the most part, we all usually hate the same things, yet there is still a vast majority of people who do them.

Maybe they just don't notice that they're doing them?

Maybe they do notice and are just the worst?

Who knows, but I'm sure you probably picture a certain someone when you think of your pet peeves. If I'm going to be honest, I picture most of my loved ones. But I'm not perfect either and that's OK because we learn to love each other for our flaws, right?

So, if you find yourself falling into one of these categories, I'm sure you are still very loved, but you should probably cut that shit out.

1. Smacking your food

The smacking noise is the worst. You sound like a damn hog at the slop trough. But you are still loved!!

2. Unnecessarily loud breathing

^ Eleven says it all.

3. People who get in front of you and then walk negative 3 miles an hour

If I'm rushing to class and you cut me off, just to walk half the speed I'm walking, I will plow your ass over.

4. Not covering your mouth when you cough

This also goes for not covering your nose when sneezing.

5. Slow drivers

This is just for the people who go 15 below the speed limit in the left lane. You, sir, need to get over.

6. Aggressive AF drivers

Shoutout to all the "yee-yee" trucks (you know who you are) who always tailgate me! Like I am already speeding, and I'm in the right lane why are you on top of me?!

7. People who think they're better than everyone else

Honestly, you probably are better than me, but you can't just assume that!

8. People who are rude to customer service workers

We are trying our best to be good workers, OK! Just be nice and have some human decency. I swear it will go a long way!

To those who are nice to waiters, waitresses, retail workers, etc.: YOU ARE THE REAL MVPs! Thanks for not sucking.

9. When someone interrupts you

^ How I will look at you if you interrupt me.

10. When someone pulls up right next to your car at a stop light and stares at you

Like why??? Are you judging me for singing along to Missy Elliott? Because if so, I kind of understand lol. But still. Mind yo business.

11. People who swerve over the centerline when driving

Why are you trying to run me over?

12. People who have to let you know that they knew a song before you did

"You're just now hearing this song?" "This song is so old." "Oh, I found this song months ago."

I do not care. :)

(This can also go for things other than music, ex: movies, books, etc.)

To The Girl Struggling With Her Body Image

It's not about the size of your jeans, but the size of your heart, soul, and spirit.

To the girl struggling with her body image,

You are more than the number on the scale. You are more than the number on your jeans and dresses. You are way more than the number of pounds you've gained or lost in whatever amount of time.

Weight is defined as the quantity of matter contained by a body or object. Weight does not define your self-worth, ambition or potential.

So many girls strive for validation through the various numbers associated with body image and it's really so sad seeing such beautiful, incredible women become discouraged over a few numbers that don't measure anything of true significance.

Yes, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle. Yes, it is important to take care of yourself. However, taking care of yourself includes your mental health as well. Neglecting either your mental or physical health will inflict problems on the other. It's very easy to get caught up in the idea that you're too heavy or too thin, which results in you possibly mistreating your body in some way.

Your body is your special, beautiful temple. It harbors all of your thoughts, feelings, characteristics, and ideas. Without it, you wouldn't be you. If you so wish to change it in a healthy way, then, by all means, go ahead. With that being said, don't make changes to impress or please someone else. You are the only person who is in charge of your body. No one else has the right to tell you whether or not your body is good enough. If you don't satisfy their standards, then you don't need that sort of negative influence in your life. That sort of manipulation and control is extremely unhealthy in its own regard.

Do not hold back on things you love or want to do because of how you interpret your body. You are enough. You are more than enough. You are more than your exterior. You are your inner being, your spirit. A smile and confidence are the most beautiful things you can wear.

It's not about the size of your jeans. It's about the size of your mind and heart. Embrace your body, observe and adore every curve, bone and stretch mark. Wear what makes you feel happy and comfortable in your own skin. Do your hair and makeup (or don't do either) to your heart's desire. Wear the crop top you've been eyeing up in that store window. Want a bikini body? Put a bikini on your body, simple.

So, as hard as it may seem sometimes, understand that the number on the scale doesn't measure the amount or significance of your contributions to this world. Just because that dress doesn't fit you like you had hoped doesn't mean that you're any less of a person.

Love your body, and your body will love you right back.

The Nike Controversy that Makes no Sense

Nike has been facing backlash recently, for reasons I just cannot understand.

2
views

Nike recently released a plus sized workout clothing line, equipped with beautiful plus size mannequins to advertise their brand. Instead of many in the fitness community rejoicing in this milestone, Nike is facing criticism because people believe that Nike is portraying unhealthy weight standards to their customers.

These individuals believe that the size that is portrayed by Nike's mannequins is obese, and as a result, is telling others that being a size like that is okay. Yet, the mannequins that are usually portrayed in Nike's stores, rarely represent body types of real people.

As I read these comments, I thought to myself – are these people crazy? Think about the men and women who have spent months, maybe even years, trying to lose enough weight just to fit into Nike's plus sized brand! As well, bigger women deserve clothes to work out in. It should not matter if they are "obese" they are working towards a healthier lifestyle.

The backlash being faced by Nike is the mentality that prevents many from even joining a gym. I can completely understand the fear an individual experiences when entering the gym, surrounded by people who look like fitness gods, and you feel like everybody is judging you. As if you do not belong in a gym.

I will never understand how creating more barriers for individuals will motivate others to exercise. In my own opinion, attractive workout clothes are more than enough to motivate me to get to the gym!

Do not let the mentality of fat-shaming, and others fear of a little jiggle prevent you from flaunting Nike's new style, and creating a healthier lifestyle for you
