It’ll be fun—pinky promise.
Just in case you have not noticed, there are a lot of women out there who have poor body image. So much so that their negative body image makes them either hide or loathe the reflection they see in photographs of themselves. So if posting a headshot for a blog or profile is not comfortable for many women, we have another idea for you.
OnePinky has a long history of relevance for me, (please feel free to go to http://onepinky.com/about-us/ and find out about OnePinky?) and we have found that women have been more than willing to send a pinky photo…
Wouldn’t it be fun to post a photo of your pinky?
Posting a picture of your pinky is taking a step toward loving yourself and self esteem building. I hear a lot of women making fun of their photo, however, I have yet to hear one make her pinky finger wrong.
You can post your pinky plain-Jane, draw her a face, dress her up, or even give her props or costumes. Go wild! What would you wear if you truly loved your body today? Show the world—with your pinky.
So post those pretty pinkies. And why not share your own pinky promises, pledges, or swears from childhood? You remember:
I won’t tell a soul. Pinky swear!
Let’s be best friends forever. Pinky promise.
I pinky promise to never like Billy. He’s your boyfriend!
Originally, a person who broke a pinky promise was supposed to cut off his or her pinky. Now that’s not very loving! Today’s pinky pledgers are usually kids or close friends who cross pinkies to signify an important promise… one that can’t be taken back. Ever.
I pinky swear to love myself for who I am.
My body is my home and I will always treat it with care. Pinky promise.
I pinky promise to let go of bad body image!
Let’s take the Pinky Pledge to love our bodies and lead our daughters by example. Pinky swear!
Remember, a pinky promise is one that cannot be broken! Do you promise to love your pinky?
Send me your own pinky picture to Laura@OnePinky.com , and if you have a pinky story add it to your caption.
Don’t have a pinky story? Share what your pinky might think or say in your caption. If your pinky could talk, what would she say? Would she tell you how beautiful she thinks you are, how ghastly she thinks those tent-tunics you use to cover your lovely self up are? Maybe she’d beg for a new nail color, or tell you jokes about your level of jointed-ness. Or share your pinky promise to yourself.Tags: negative body image, pinky finger, poor body image, self-esteem
