A picture speaks a thousand words:
How did our body image ideal shrink to size zero? We allowed it. We have allowed ourselves to be enrolled in some strangers idea of what is ideal, and that ideal is based on manipulation of emotions in order to create fear – in order to sell products. You can choose to sign up for a different body image ideal — like the one you live in. 🙂 Love and approve of yourself and you will take care and appreciate your body.
