Tia Mowry, co-star of show “Sister Sister” has always been an outgoing person, so when people were commenting about her body on instagram, of course had something to say about it.

In an interview, Mowry talked about how aggravating it is to constantly have people judging her on her weight gain. Mowry had to cease rumors about her being pregnant again. In which, Mowry calls it “body shaming.”

“We live in a society that is so obsessed with being perfect,” she said. “It’s almost like what Beyonce said — I’m obsessed with Beyonce, I love her — she said ‘perfection is like a disease.”

The real question is, “when will we ever learn to accept others the way they are?”

As a society we need to stop judging one another, and instead be happy and encourage one another. Society is trying to portray “beauty” as skinny, looks, posture, skin tone, etc., when the real beauty is who we are. God created us all to be unique individuals.

Who are we to say that someone isn’t skinny, pretty, or tall enough to live in this kind of society? It seems as if every individual on this planet is inspired by family, society, and social media, almost as if people are scared to be themselves in this world. All in which affect who a person is; family because we look up to them and they influence who we are. Society and social media go hand and hand, because we tend to secretly envy one another whether you want to admit it or not. One minute we see something we want and aspire to have it. For example, I see a picture of Rihanna, nine times out of ten I’m going to want to look like her and dress like her, but before there was social media, instagram, twitter, pinterest, etc, we accepted individuals for who they were. We need to continue to do just that. It’s not right to bring another down; we all are unique and different.
