“Be critical of the media, not your body;
Extend love where hate breeds most in your body;
Acknowledge that true strength is not based on the weights you lift or the delicious food you deny, but rather your resilience in the face of impossible demands on your body.
Your concerns and feelings about your body aren’t trivial. They echo those of millions of other men and women who never learned to see their bodies as good enough; only that their bodies can always, always be better.”
body image activism is needed. x.
