What’s the STORY behind body image?
Like me, maybe some of you you have struggled with body image, body dysmorphia or maybe even an eating disorder. These issues don’t discriminate in shape or size, or how people perceive us. This is a deeply personal journey for me. I struggled with body image and body dysmorphia for most of my life. I had a deep disdain for parts of my body, always tried different fad diets to achieve an idea of perfection, worked out to punish myself for what I ate and spent years focusing on what I was consuming. I lived a life hating my body. I worked VERY hard on getting to a place where I feel good in my body. It took years and lots of conscious effort, and I can finally say that I am the healthiest version of myself, not because of a number on a scale but because I learned to love this God-given body that I inhabit. I have included how I was able to achieve it in case you or someone you know might be struggling with this. This is a complicated issue but one I tried to condense in short form. If you are going through this I want you to know you are not alone and on the other side of this is peace, joy and self-love. God Bless and thank you for watching.
