Tear It Up

Tear up the negative body and self talk this FFF

How FFF started

Fresh Faced Friday is a concept which was developed by a group of young people involved in the ABC Heywire program.

It was through a FRRR ABC Heywire Youth Innovation Grants that ALDAF and TINO were able to develop FFF into a reality in conjunction with the group of young people who created FFF concept. Creating a day full of celebrating being who we want to be judgement free

With schools, community group and individuals getting involved across Australia, a whole lot of body and self positivity was spread on the day.

We hope you will join us this FFF, 2nd September 2016, and help us all 'Tear Up' the negative and get body positive.

 

Body image is your attitude towards your body - how you see yourself, how you think and feel about the way you look and how you think others perceive you.

Feeling good about your self and your body image is important because people who do will generally have a higher level of physical and psychological health, and better personal development, impacting on many other areas of our life such as self esteem, outlook on life, self-acceptance and relationships.

Fresh Faced Friday’s #freshfacedfriday “Tear It Up” campaign is about making sure the positive gets much more airtime in our minds and conversation than the negative – allowing us to feel comfortable in who we are.

 

By Joining the campaign you are helping raise awareness of this important topic and showing your support for others to also take a Fresh Faced Friday look at how they see, think, feel and talk about themselves and their body image. Find out more about how to "Tear It Up".

As a teenager I’ve learned that girls can be very insecure and judgemental about appearance. At school girls I knew insulted each other about their looks constantly, and even competed about whose eating disorder was most severe. At 19 years old I am sick of all this and am ready to see a world where everyone is comfortable in their own skin.

At unleashed last year, an FYA intern said something along the lines of ‘you alone are enough, you have nothing to prove’. That puts it perfectly, you are exactly who you are meant to be, beauty goes beyond what you see, and you as a person are perfect just the way you are, inside and out.

Whether we love long summer afternoons with friends, the colour purple, our dog, Burt, or tubs of Nutella, we often forget to love the most basic of things; ourselves. Self-love can’t be taught, it’s something we develop from within, by feeling comfortable in our own skin.

"I wish when I was in high school I learnt to embrace my “flaws” rather than cover them up with makeup and hair spray. I hope that Fresh Faced Friday will help young people embrace who they are – “flaws” and all,” said Michelle.

“Fresh Faced Friday is all about owning who you are. It’s about being comfortable in your own skin and not trying to hide or cover-up in order to confirm. It’s about saying ‘this is me, I’m different, I’ve got flaws, and that’s okay!’ It’s time to change the conversation about body image, it’s time to talk body positive.”

“We hope Fresh Faced Friday will create more acceptance of body diversity. We hope it will encourage people not just to define themselves and each other by their appearance, but to look a bit deeper.”
