Re: [CHAT] Body Image

[ Edited ]

What are some things you like about your body?

 

It's a hard question and I don't actually like answering it but anyway...

My hair is nice and easy to put up Smiley Tongue My nails grow nicely. Small boobs that don't get in the way Smiley Tongue I like that I eat heaps, but it doesn't show. (That's more my metabolism, but i've never felt "fat" really.)

Convienience really Smiley Very Happy

 

Edit: I posted it twice. hehe

I like my arms, which might seem kind of weird, but they're very arm-like and help me do lots of things like lifting and clapping and dancing.

I like my legs too, because they are very leg-like and let me run around and play soccer and not miss my bus. Also my hair, but only really in the mornings after I've showered when it cooperates with me. It's get's a little disobedient when it's dry Smiley Tongue

Okay time for one last Q and also for everyone to say goodnight cause it's nearly the end of the chat! But you can always come back later and answer any of the questions in the chat or continue the conversation  Smiley Happy 

 

 Why do people find it difficult to identify positive aspects of their body?

I also wear shorts in winter @loves netball. Sometimes it's a bad choice though, and I end up totally freezing Smiley Tongue

 

That's an awesome list of positives you've made, too Smiley Very Happy

We've talked about this stuff before but no one wants to come across cocky. People bag out others who love themselves. 

And I guess the pressure of having to have the PERFECT body. Not sure what that is though

I think we're all our harshest critics, and we often judge ourselves way more than anyone else does. So that might be why it's difficult. On the other hand, it must just be that we're all so humble...

I now personally, i'm afraid. Afraid that someone will think i'm too confident or think i'm up myself etc. just for being ablle to say something. 

It can aslo be hard to find things we like because of the constant drilling into our brains that we need to "fix" ourselves from the media.
