Amazing Response to Mean Online Comments

This video is serendipitously relevant to two of my posts this week!  In my Best Online At-Home Workouts post, I recommended you to Cassey Ho, YouTube Pilates instructor extraordinaire.

Apparently, she’s been getting a lot of negative YouTube comments lately about how she’s “too fat” to be a trainer, and how she needs to lose weight or look different.  It’s not easy to read those sorts of comments about yourself, no matter how ridiculous they may be.  Cassey, being the class act that she is, responded with the artistic video below as a larger commentary on the obsession of perfectionism in our culture.  Such a brilliant way to respond to these awful comments, I just had to share it.

If you enjoyed this video, you might like my post from yesterday about the wonders of getting rid of your scale!

Thanks for reading all ❤

  1. This is so powerful! It seems like whether or not it comes from an outside source, we all CAN and DO find something to hate about ourselves (physically or otherwise). Our social media driven culture doesn’t help. In a world of what seems like an oversharing competition, it can feel like our best is NEVER good enough. Personally, I try to find the beauty in other women and empower them with my words instead of breaking them down. Why is it that sometimes I forget to do that with myself? I know I have an area (or two) that I can find myself obsessing over if I’m not careful. I have to be intentional about where I let my thoughts go. Some say “fake it ’til you make it”. I prefer “practice until it’s a habit”.

    I read through your other posts, and I applaud you for speaking up about such personal and painful things on your blog. I think sometimes it’s brave to not APPEAR brave. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable prepares you for a special kind of healing, and lets others know they are not alone & that there IS hope. You are an inspiration to all of us “normal” people trying to do the best we can with what we have.

    1. Wow, thank you so much for your thoughtful comments! That really means a lot to me. I love that – practice until it’s a habit. That’s essentially what I’m doing 🙂 Thank you again for your kindness ❤️
