Hi babies, I’m off my crutches and off work – so I have some time to catch up with you all! Had some lovely emails from you with best wishes and then some with questions. 3 of the emails we received were there abouts identical, and just so, Andy, Wendy & Michaela know, the “Family Cooking” post will go up tomorrow okay babies?
Anyway! I have a gripe, and 5 lovely followers have recently asked for advice on these situations, so… This really irritates me. A bit of “he said she said” but bare with me! Yesterday I was told by a friend, that someone had said to them that Martin is “way too big, makes me uncomfortable & doesn’t look right”.
DON’T get me wrong I totally understand that it isn’t everybody’s cup of tea – absolutely fine! BUT, how does it make you feel uncomfortable? If we have a blog follower that feels this way, please could you shed a little light on this? Because I find that with Martin, there’s only ever 2 ends to his spectrum, on the 1 end, people want to be friends with him because then they have a “big strong friend” should an uncomfortable situation arise for them….
On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are those that just refer to Martin as a “juice head, stay away from him he looks angry whenever he’s in the gym, oh he just looks like a wanker, the kind of guy to eat your soul”.
WELL. Let me just stop you there, BODYBUILDERS – (and yes I’m going to put you all into a category together) – on a whole, are thee most gentle people you could come across. They’re focused, yes they’re “angry” in the gym, and that’s because they want to make progress and smash whatever workout their doing at the time, they AVOID confrontation, they DO NOT use their size against anybody or as a strength and an advantage. THEY ARE JUST NORMAL BLOODY PEOPLE, NOT ANGRY SPECIMEN. The majority of Bodybuilders, that you would look to on YouTube or in magazines, are Fathers’, Family Men, with large families, great friendship circles – would this be the case if they were all just great big arseholes? No.
Then to the people that criticize them for being “too big” and “looking ridiculous”. Do you know how much time and dedication goes into transforming their bodies? Everybody has a different body, my body is full of tattoos and that makes me a freak. Well that is fine by me, because everybodies body, is A BLANK CANVAS. Do with it what you wish to do. You don’t need to be one of those nasty, secluded individuals, that lives in their own special world of verbal bullying. If we all just accepted each other for what/who we were, this world would be so beautiful, instead of judging a book by their cover – talk to people, get to know them, THEN feel free to make your judgement. We’re only human at the end of the day.
“If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”
YOU ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL BABIES, DON’T LET ANYONE EVER TELL YOU OTHERWISE.
And if you are one of them, that has something to say on this subject, PLEASE, leave a comment in the comment box, we are so happy to talk about this.
All my love, the wife xo
