Isn't that terribly sad?! All those very attractive women have so little confidence :(
But I know I would be just as bad - it drives my husband crazy!! What IS our problem, I wonder??!
It is sad. I'm going to compliment my daughters and my friends more! Oh, and myself - that's the point isn't it! I have nice coloured eyes and I rather like my wrists and ankles. You?
I'm very grateful that my 3 daughters seem to have healthy attitudes to their bodies of all sizes (that's what you get when you, as my mom so delicately put it, combine a dachshund and a great dane… thanks, mom!) but my own has been damaged by many years of irrational comparison, probably due to developing early and not appreciating woman v. girl. I've always been happy with my eyes and my lips and am trying to stay friendly with my hair, which was my crowning glory (thanks grandad!) and always thick and curly, i.e. unruly, and which I have now allowed to go iron grey. But that's not "body", is it - I'm far more hard put to admire my own, though somebody who was suffering from being too thin or flat-chested may admire flesh and frontage! The best I can honestly do is to know I have more flexibility than most, and my health. A bit lame?!
i think the hardest thing for a modern woman is to feel completely at home and comfortable in her own skin...men sure don't feel this way, do they? we are all way too hard on ourselves....this one was really a valuable eye-opener.
Apparently many young men and boys are feeling the same - let's tell them all how handsome they are! And what do you like about yourself? Do tell!
you are right! it is very hard to do....i like how strong my body is; the strength i feel when i work hard, like shoveling snow for 45 minutes!
Oh for some snow to shovel! And a strong body like yours to shovel it with..
No, not lame at all, but very thoughtful and considered. Thanks for commenting!
