“When it comes to body image, we’ve been fed this narrative where we have to fit this one ideal. I just have to remind myself that I’ve been told a lie. I look in the mirror sometimes if I’m feeling self-conscious about some part of my body and I just tell it, out loud, ‘I love you, little roll here. I love you, little scar here. Oh my God, that’s like a memory. Don’t change. You’re beautiful.’ I feel super silly doing it at times, but it does kind of work in a way. It sort of helps hack my brain. It’s empowering to say, I’m in love with all of this.” allure Magazine
