Body Image


 Content Editor


We are constantly shown images of skinny glamorous women by the media and sometimes it can make it difficult for us to feel happy with our own bodies.

However, it is important to remember:

  1. Different people are attracted to all different body shapes and sizes; it would be boring if we were all the same.
  2. Most of us are attracted to people despite (or even maybe because) of their flaws, so it follows that we will all be attractive to other people despite our own flaws.
  3. It is normal to be a bit self-conscious or not to like all of our body but it is also important to accept ourselves the way we are and to feel comfortable in our own skin.

Remember that anyone who cares about you will accept you whatever your body shape or size.
