Body Image by Trisha Rapley...
Updated: Oct 15
I haven't always been accepted for who I am and how I looked. My body; was judged because of its imperfections or just not what someone wanted in a woman.
It weighs so heavily on your heart to hear people want you to be something you're not.
Your butt is too big. Your legs are huge. Maybe you should go to the gym. Maybe you should eat more. Just get a boob job. How about you dye your hair. You should cut your hair. You'd look better with more weight.
You name it I've heard it. Throughout life, I have been all the kind of woman.
A skinny, fit gym junkie body. A solid, comfortable mum's body. A voluptuous happy woman's body. An overweight uncomfortable lady body.
I know exactly how it feels to be all that and more. But not once has ANY of my body shapes been appreciated.
It really wears you down and truly has the most significant effect on your self-esteem and self-worth.
I love the woman I am today... voluptuous, beautiful, confident, and happy.
Believe me, it hasn't come easy for me to be able to stand in front of the mirror and love what I see.
Being appreciated and told how amazing I look and how perfect I am doing more for me than anything ever has.
Always appreciate those who go out of their way to tell you how truly beautiful you are both inside and out.
