▶ Body Evolution – Model Before and After – YouTube
Like millions of others in this world, I struggle with body image. I try to remind myself that I am not merely a dress size nor a number on a scale. I try to remember that I am smart, funny, kind and yes beautiful. But, it is difficult to keep a positive self-image when our society appears to idolize perfection.
That idolization is why I appreciate the different movements that attempt to speak to the hearts of people about the horrible self-chatter that thrives in our heads. You know the dialogue. Those words of depreciation and loathing. The comparisons and self-hate. Hopefully the different lessons point out to us that we wouldn’t say those horrible things to another person and we certainly wouldn’t allow anyone to talk to us that way, so why? Why, why WHY is it ok to talk to ourselves that way?
Right now, take a few moments to realize how wonderfully and uniquely created you are. There is no one like you. Start your own revolution by ripping out a page from Operation Beautiful. Hear that negative self-talk and shut it down. Shhhhut Down Fat Talk. Realize that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Because Who is Perfect? But start today and learn to love your one-of-a-kind and beautiful self.
Do you struggle with body image? What, if anything, have you done to try and change that?
