Do you see beauty in bodies that look like you, but aren’t your own?

Do you see beauty in bodies that look like you, but aren’t your own?

Has this ever happened to you? You see another woman, think 'god she looks good', realise her body is super similar to yours, and wonder why you therefore don't feel like this about yourself?

This is something I REALLY held onto in recovery. I would see so much beauty in other bodies that looked similar to mine, but I could never see the beauty in my own. Sad, yes, but the proof I needed that the problem didn't lie with my body. It was in my mind - it was about my perception of my body. And it gave me hope because I then knew I had the capacity to see beauty in my own body.

I hope this gives you hope, too. I get women in my DMs constantly saying 'my body looks like yours, and I think you look great, but I feel disgusted at mine'. Usually these messages have an air of hopelessness, but I reply with the news that this is a GOOD thing. This is your HOPE. Hold onto it. Use it to reassure you that you will, one day, be comfortable in your own skin - and maybe even feel GOOD in your own skin.
