Body Image

I stood in front of the mirror naked today after my shower, just looking at myself, and telling myself that what I see isn’t what I really look like. I’ve started doing this as an exercise to hopefully help me work on my body dismorphic issues. Been doing this for about a month now; haven’t posted about it until now because I wasn’t sure if it was going to work.

But it worked tonight. Instead of seeing someone disgusting and fat, I think I might have seen a little bit of what I really look like. It was a strange and amazing feeling, like when I got glasses for the first time and could see things sharply for the first time in years.

Also, I dare say, I look pretty good. Which is something I haven’t said about myself in a really long time. So, there’s hope for me yet.

  1. You look amazing. I promise 🙂

    • Aw, thank you. Somewhere in the bowels of this blog there’s a semi-recent picture (it’s about a month old now I think) of me. I really need to get my fiance to help me categorize my blog so it’s easier to find posts without digging through the whole thing lol.

    I’m glad you’re starting to be able to see yourself the way the rest of us see you. ❤
