I do not know the individual involved in this, but, as an EMT, I feel compelled to post things like this. Wear a damn helmet, guys. I know you may think you look awesome and all the ladies will love how reckless you are, but you’re honestly just demonstrating just how little you value your own life. I know this horse has been absolutely beaten to death over the years, and I’m sure that my words won’t change some of your minds, but just look at the damage sustained by that helmet. Now imagine if your face was put through the same situation. While the helmet merely had part of it ground away by the sheer friction involved, your skull would be pudding. End of story.
TLDR Version: Wear a freaking helmet.

All too familiar with all the things he had done or not done in his life, novelist Keiichiro Hirano had trouble accepting himself as a “good” or a “bad” person, until he realized that maybe he was a bit more complicated than that.

One of the best things you can do for your body image *right now* is to appreciate it. Appreciate what your body has allowed you to do – regardless of your abilities, appearance or health status – and acknowledge those strengths and gifts. Then, rather than being hung up on our bodies, move the focus to other areas of yourself and your life that bring fulfillment, whether that is relationships, talents, accomplishments, or service to others. We like the way awesome actress Melissa McCarthy described this idea. Learning to love your body at whatever state it is in now can be difficult in this objectifying, body shaming culture, but it is not impossible, and the process is incredibly rewarding. The sooner you make peace with your body, the sooner you improve your mental and physical health, and move on to bigger and better things than fixating on appearance!
