Friend Friday: Loving Your Body Image
2. Are you self-conscious about any aspect of yourself? If so, do you go out of your way to avoid it or do you post it/talk about it anyway? My forehead. Odd as that is. When I was probably about 12 a hairdresser told me that I had a really big forehead. Ever since I've been all to aware of it. This is actually the first time in years that I haven't had bangs. So I guess you might call that avoiding it? But other than that I don't avoid it, and I would be glad to talk about it. Also I have really big hands and feet for someone my size.
3. Based on how you are feeling now, what do you think the future holds in the evolution of your body image? I feel good, and I hope that only more good things are to come. I am like a fine wine and I will only get better with age. (Lame, I know. But it is true.)
4. Do you photograph yourself for your blog? If so, how do you feel about the experience when you’re having your picture taken? If you choose not to post pictures of yourself, what prompted that decision? I take pictures of myself for my blog. To be a little more specific I usually take my own picture. I don't like having someone else on the other side of the camera because it makes me feel like I'm trying to model and I can't just be my goofy self. I started my blog to develop my own sense of style, and figure out what works for me. Maybe give someone else an idea along the way and make a few friends. For me the pictures are a big part of figuring out what works, and just developing.
5. What would you want every person who struggles with body image to take to heart? This is so hard for me to put into words, but I'll try. I know when I had the worst body image I was the one who was hardest on myself. Just changing that self depreciating train of though was so difficult, but it really was all that I needed to do. Always think about what makes you so amazing and don't beat yourself up.
I guess for me with body images, this blog and what not I just try to have fun and not take myself too seriously...
