Body Image: Do You Like What You See in the Mirror?
The reflection you see in the mirror is shaped by the way you feel about yourself.
It’s easy to believe that the “perfect” body will somehow make you happier or more confident about your looks. That idea is sold to us constantly in magazines, movies, on TV, and in pretty much every beauty and fashion ad in existence. But the truth is that positive body image isn’t about the number on your scale or the size of your clothes. It’s something that comes from having confidence in who you are—your talents, your beliefs, and your strengths.
Low self-esteem and poor body image go hand-in-hand. People who lack inner confidence often end up obsessing about their outward appearance. You might think that your looks are holding you back in life, but body image insecurities go much deeper. If you want to change the way you see yourself, the first step is to learn how to take pride in all the things that make you uniquely you.
What makes you proud to be YOU?
