I can't say I agree with this to be honest. Yes, you should exercise, yes you should eat healthy, but not because of what others think. You should do it for YOU, because you want to. Not because of what you're afraid people might be mean to you, or make fun of you. They shouldn't do that in the first place in my opinion. Who knows what's going on in other peoples lives. For all you know, they may have some kind of health problem, and aren't able to do as much exercise as other people do.
Sometimes "real" is our desire for a particular and preferred frame of reference to materialize. Our expectations may cause us to spend years believing the frame will be realized only because we once had it and want it again. Real is when we cease to wait for something to frame up. Waiting =/= Living. ~Zest of Life
"So this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad, and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be." I have never read the book nor seen the movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but I'm sure that's about to change, for I certainly have fallen in love with some of its quotes.
