20 Body Positive Quotes To Empower You On Thanksgiving

If you’re like me, then you know thanksgiving can trigger a slew of emotions for you.

It’s the first time in a long time where you’re seeing family all at once. It can be nerve-racking.

No one wants to feel uncomfortable on thanksgiving-or receive an unsolicited comment from a family member stating how much your body has changed.

Anyone can relate to this? These body positivity quotes are for you to keep in your phone, your back pocket, or written on your hand.

They are there to empower you, we can’t control what others say to us but we can control how we respond and what thoughts we internalize about ourselves.

For the person who is reading this, you are beautiful and your body is beautifully made with intention.

The comments you’ll receive are from people who more than likely received similar comments to them.

It’s not about you.

Final Thoughts on Body Image Quotes

There is enough attention spent on articles listing body-shaming quotes, I wanted this list to really resonate with you all and feel good about what you’re reading.

I hope you treat this like a practical life hack for when comments from those people about your body get too much.

Heck, you can reply with any one of these quotes and give them something to think about.

Also, I realized there’s a name for what people like to call this list. You’re more than welcome to call your quote something else.

I’ve heard of plus-size body positivity quotes, positive aesthetic quotes, inspirational quotes aesthetic, and most recently from another blog, relationship thick girl quotes.

Whatever you decide to call them, I just want you to walk away feeling empowered, because you’re shape or weight is glorious.

So, which body positivity quote or love your body quote will you be reciting to yourself this holiday season?
