For years I hated my body; I used to wish that I had a different body or that so-and-so was a lil’ bigger, but whenever people pointed out that I could have surgery to achieve the body I desired, I always looked at them in shock. It’s silly, right? You’d think that if I hated my body that much I would change it to make it something I would love, but I was too chicken (and too poor) to do so. So I decided: why not save all of that money and just learn to love every aspect of myself instead?
I’ve long learnt that self-love is a never-ending journey. Thankfully, though, I don’t seem to be caught in the comparison trap as much these days and have started to embrace the things that I used to hate. So yep, I’m now in love with the shape of me!
