When I was a child I would see these "perfect women" on the T.V./Movies or in magazines. I would idolize them and constantly compare myself to the way they looked. I recall being in high-school and hearing a boy talk about my weight. Saying I was "chubby", I was devastated. I started skipping meals and checking my weight constantly on the scale.
My view of my self-worth relied solely on my outer appearance. To the point I would not leave my house without make-up, even for a quick errand! I know, crazy right?!?! There are so many teen girls I have worked with that do not see themselves as beautiful. In today's society with social media caked with influencers promoting these "perfect" bodies and unrealistic expectations of what a girl/women's bodies should look like, we need to promote now more than ever self-love and acceptance of all women! We are all beautiful and unique and that's the way that we should be viewed. As children, teenagers or adults we need to learn that it is okay to be ourselves. Like the way we look because we are meant to be different. How boring would life be if we all looked and acted a like?
Please join me on the journey to promote self-love and end body shaming!!!
YOU YES YOU ARE GORGEOUS!!!!
