I do have body image problems, but I don't let them rule my life, at all... there's only one of you, so why would want to look like everyone else ??
Your body should of been your first love (my mind is telling my body)
To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don't need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.
Remember that our bodies are always changing, and that's okay. What's really unhealthy is trying to fit an unrealistic norm of what is seen as perfect.
In case nobody told you today... YOU are beautiful.
Hello! So ive been with my boyfriend for 3 months and we have had sex (he was my first time) and I wasnt stressed about it. What I am stressed about is preliminaries (like giving head) ans I havent done it yet and Idk why but it stresses me like and I wanna do it but like I dont ... idk I never gave him preliminaries because it stresses me (idk why) but Not giving him also stresses me so like there is my problem ... I think Im scared to be bad at it J guess ? Anyone can relate or have advice ?

I’m struggling with self acceptance. Especially in a world where people definitely do not accept themselves and are always trying to change. cosmetic surgery wouldn’t be a billion-dollar industry if that wasn’t the case. It feels like the people in my life are telling me to accept my flaws. But the world and the media is telling me not to. Does anybody else struggle with this?
What do you do when your hair plays a big part in your self confidence? But is frowned upon in the workforce and seen as “unprofessional”? Not so easy to bite the bullet as someone who has body Dysmorphia.
Hi! I have kind of a weird and personal question. I have a lot of body hair and as summers getting closer I’m getting more and more nervous. Because it makes me so uncomfortable. And the worst part is that I keep wondering what my future partner will think. Will he think is disgusting? I guess I’m just wondering if someone feels the same way and how you do to combat it. Thanks in advance❤️
Any BDD folks here?
Hi, I’m new to the group. I’ve dealt with negative image perception since I was a child. I have been called “ugly” most of my life and I want to change how I feel about myself. I have always also been very compassionate and non-judgemental about how others look as I’ve experienced my own fair share of pain. Hopefully I can get to know some of you :)
Hello everyone and welcome to all the new members! I've been trying to sort through my clothes today, only made a start because I haven't got rid of so much in over a decade 😬😬 But it got me thinking about how much I struggle with my body image, how age changes my body and how I then perceive myself. I've gained weight over the years for various reasons I won't go into now, and it's been a real struggle to feel good in my body as I have these ideas around what i think I should look like. Right now, I'm sitting on my floor thinking, duck it, I have a body, I have clothes I can rock, I want to love my body more, to thank it more rather than punish and hate it. It's a challenge though. So, I was wondering if you all would like to share some tips, thoughts and general ideas about what helps you with being body positive. much appreciated 💜
I definitely have body issues, but everybody does. When you come to the realization that everybody does - even the people that I consider flawless - then you can start to live with the way you are.
You are not a mistake. You are not a problem to be solved. But, you won't discover this until you are willing to stop banging your head against the wall of shaming and caging and fearing yourself.
Every time I go out into the public and place myself amongst lots of other people - it becomes apparent to me how fucked up I am. I feel so different to everybody else. In ways I never felt before. I’m messed up in very obvious ways. I only feel semi-normal in my home. Unfortunately that’s not a sustainable lifestyle.
Hey everyone, i'm new in this community 😉
