Why being healthy does not make you a good person!
Updated: Jan 24, 2021
Health is a living process, not an achievement. It is a privilege, not a badge of worth. For most of us, our health is not about our choices; it’s often about our circumstances, past and present.
This is worth saying, especially because advertising and social media, like Instagram — with its perfect smoothie bowls and glowing selfies — might have us believe otherwise. But this denies so many important factors that determine our health and our lifestyle options. Having a medical condition, a particular bodyweight or health challenge is not a sign of weakness or moral failing, and it’s never an invitation to be judged on your lifestyle choices.
