I was using it for bad purposes such as thinspo and following alot of SH blogs but now i want to be able to go on it to find recipes and look at inspirational fit woman and stuff.
The only issue with using tumblr for weight inspiration, be it positive or not, is that you have used it for negative purposes before. Although you want to look at healthily fit people; you're essentially using them in the same way as you did thinspo. If you do have troubles with your self image, having 'thinspiration' hanging around will be triggering either way. Or, at least this is something I'd think. So even though it may be intended positively, it can quite easily become the opposite. So this may be something your parents will not be comfortable with either way.
In any case, if you want to have your parents consider this, you have to show to them that what you're doing is in efforts to be healthy. Explain it to them, offer them the chance to see the things you're reblogging or people you're following. It may be a little difficult at first, but if you are keeping everything within healthy limits, eventually they may become more comfortable with your tumblr usage again.
Be honest. I think that's the best you can do, really. You could say something like, "I understand why you guys wouldn't want me to have a tumblr because of what has happened in the past (you can elaborate on that, if you want); but I promise I've learned my lesson. Those thinspo blogs were totally sick and depressing, and I don't want anything to do with them anymore, I promise. I want a tumblr for things like recipes, inspirational FIT woman, etc. I'd really appreciate it if you both could trust me on this. If you really want, you could watch me when I go on it to see what exactly I would be doing. How does that sound?"
You cant,they will not believe any thing you say for the time being as you have already said you used it for bad purposes and they have found out,if you were my daughter you would be life time banned from it if it is bad for ya...listen to em,they know best and only do what they do for your best intrest...it is good to know some parents do look at what there kids are looking at..
Tell them what you said in the description bar of this question. If they are iffy maybe they could check who you follow. If they are even more iffy then have them watch you when you are on the site.
But if they say No, then its No and dont fight it or push or argue. There are plenty of other places to find recipes and etc.
Yeah its good they watch what we are doing but they completely imvade my privacy. It isn't a bad site and it could be really helpful, i will just have to wait until i move out then =T
Tell your parents
you can't boss me around on the net.
make one again and don't let know them
and what are SH blogs?
and what kind of bad purposes ;)
Maybe u cud tell them that they can check who ur followin and stuff whenever they want, sorry I don't know anything about tumblr
I don't go behind my parents backs it is wrong and i'm not into deceiving people
be honest to your family and ask them to use it
Not good advice Napp
let them monitor it
I could do that!
