If you’ve ever seen the movie Legion, you probably know where the title of this post came from! I’ll say that no one likes to hear someone complain, certainly not this old hag! Regardless if you’ve seen the movie or not, do yourself a favor and check out the clip for a good laugh:
I can’t help cracking up every time I watch that clip. It’s timeless. From the way ROC launches that frying pan and it soars through the air, to the way the old woman pimp slaps Dennis Quaid after having scurried across the ceiling like a half breed between SpiderMan and a cockroach (she must have been wearing Nikes!), and all the while the expression on Tyrese’s face at the happening of it all. Hilarious!
So often I read/hear busty ladies complaining about it. I mean the laundry list of complains that we’re all familiar with are as follows:
The Laundry List
- I can’t ever find a bra that fits and if I do they are super expensive.
- I hate the constant attention and random people staring at me.
- I hate wearing scarves because they make me hot and even the thinnest ones make me feel bulkier up top.
- Stretch marks.
- I hate the fact that I look like a stripper when I wear tight clothing.
- I hate the fact that I look fat in baggy clothes.
- I always have to buy separate bikini bottoms/tops because I wear a small on the bottom and a large on top.
- They always get in the way when I do anything, like carrying things, sleeping, exercising… shall I go on?
- I’m tired of everyone saying, “I wish I had big boobs like you.”
- Oh, and the best one, all the complaints related to back issues and the like.
Complain, complain, complain… you know the rest.
We all have issues with our breasts (large or small). Just like most things in life, large breasts are neither all positive nor negative. In my own life, I’ve learned to love my breasts (and entire body for that matter), and to take and accept the bad with the good. I could spend any amount of time complaining about the things I feel uncomfortable doing because of my figure, or about the pains I may feel more often that I would care to, but I’d rather spend that time enjoying life.
Our culture portrays large breasts in a certain light. I choose to ignore all of that crap, because honestly it never helps me feel good. It’s taken time for me to become comfortable in my own skin and having spent many years not able to say that, I know that I prefer this vs the alternative.
Choosing Positivity over Negativity
Anytime I feel the need to complain… I think about how that time could be better spent!
