An blog article I read a couple of days ago resonated with me and I thought I’d share it here.
Many women have issues with their bodies. And much as we’re told to let poor self-image go, we’re constantly inundated with pictures of society-accepted proportions for women. Since large numbers of women dress for men, comments made by men are positively powerful or devastating.
Women – we need to appreciate ourselves, embrace our ‘un-standard’ features and proportions graciously and look for ways to feel better about ourselves.
Men – make positive comments about women and keep negative comments to yourselves. If you could only ‘see’ the impact your critical words make about a woman’s body, you’d likely not say it.
Here’s the link to the article I mentioned: “The Body Issue”
