Philippians 4:8 says “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.”
I try to keep this in mind when deciding whom I should follow. This means that if you curse a lot in your posts, I won’t follow you back (I’ve made a few exceptions for people with whom i am close). If you talk a lot about sexual things, I just don’t want that much information, so I won’t follow you. This also goes for anything else I find offensive.
In a similar vein, if you are constantly negative, I won’t follow you because with my depression, I’m fighting enough with the negativity in my own head. If you’re fighting depression, too, then that’s different.
Finally, if you post thinspo, you’re out. I don’t need that messing with my body dysmorphia. This also goes for blogs that post a lot of fitspo. I’m never going to look like a fitness model. Seeing pages of photos like that just makes me feel bad that I have fat left on my body. Fat that’s going to stay on my body.
Because I am trying to start eating intuitively and developing a better mindset toward food, I will no longer follow bloggers that constantly rate days as good or bad based on what they ate instead of what they did. If you talk more about weight loss that your real life, if workouts are solely valued based on calorie burn rather than how they make you feel, if you speak as if there was only one right way to eat, I will no longer follow you. If your blog contributes to the food police voice in my head, I will no longer follow you.
