I think our culture has idolized the body so much that we have learned to greatly fear and criticize our so called “imperfections”.
We try so hard not to show that we have body hair, sometimes in unusual places, that we have little bumps, storages of fat, wrinkles, rolls, cellulite and different proportions.
We’ve come to believe this is not ok. This is not attractive, not healthy, not desirable, too much or not enough!!! Well, at least I know I have... 😔
It’s been extremely harmful for me to have grown up seeing images of flawless, skinny, fat-free, shiny, air-brushed bodies in posters, magazines, movies. Then to look at my body and always compare it to that ideal of perfection, but never really getting there, no matter what I do. .
I am deciding to not hide those “imperfections” anymore. I don’t want to constantly carry the pressure to look like those models in order to feel good about myself.
I’m choosing to love all of me and all of you! 😊🧡
