Body positivity is a lot easier said than done. We’ve been socialized to be so critical of ourselves that our insecurities tend to spiral out of control. We’re convinced that someone is actually paying attention to the hair on our knuckles or is disgusted by our crop top bearing a stomach that definitely doesn’t boast rock hard abs.
We’re bombarded with crap that makes us feel insecure about our bodies, even when we know how many of the images we see are Photoshopped or otherwise exaggerated. But that doesn’t stop us from feeling like we wish we were as skinny as one of our friends or didn’t have as many breakouts.
