Being body positive doesn’t mean that you have to be positive 24/7. It entails learning to love the body you have. It’s a journey. You don’t always have to like your body. Part of being body positive is unlearning all of the hatred you have toward your body and that doesn’t happen over night. It’s okay to have bad days.

“When the feminists began to become very articulate and write articles and march and go meet in camps and have magazines and so on, I always said, ‘That’s interesting, they’re having these huge meetings about feminism and the power of women and they’re leaving all their Black maids at home,’ but that was indeed that separation which was race separation, perhaps even a class one, was very pronounced to me and some African-American writers. I think Alice Walker has chosen other names for that—womanist as oppose to feminism and so on. The absence of those fierce black women no matter what the circumstances and difficulty one had in negotiating socially, I’d go into a house somebody of somebody of stature and they introduce me to their housekeeper and I say, "Hello, Mrs. Jones,’ and then I’m spoken to later by the mistress of the house says, ’ Why did you call ‘Mrs. Jones’? I call her ‘Hattie’," and I say, "I would never call a woman of age by her first name—never." So, differences were pronounces culturally and racially.”—Toni Morrison in her New York Public Library talk with Junot Díaz December 12, 2013
