“I embraced myself and found self-love.”
The part of my body I’m most insecure about is my stomach. I’m insecure about my stomach because it isn’t as small as I want it to be.
My body image affects me mentally because I start to think I’m not as attractive or appealing as other men.
Physically, I’m affected because I stop myself from wearing certain things because I start to think I won’t look good in them.
I’m emotionally affected because I find myself depressed when I don’t stick to my diet or decide to skip the gym.
At the end, I always feel regret when I look in the mirror. It reminds me of how my stomach looks.
I personally believe social media plays a very big role on how I view my body as not good enough. My favorite stores really don’t have my size, which makes it hard to shop sometimes, and seeing many of their ads feature mainly tall muscular guys, it makes me feel left out.
When I walk into stores, I see only one body type and it makes me feel as though my body type does not fit in.
The many ways I overcame my body issues is just realizing how beautiful my body is. I embraced myself and found self-love.
The advice that I would give to people dealing with this problem is to not look other places for approval. You have to look at yourself in the mirror and realize that you are beautiful just the way you are.
