Ep190: The Salt in our Wounds: Body Image and External Comments

Season #8

In today’s episode I’ll be talking about body image and external comments. It’s been a common thread since slowly rejoining activities and loved ones after this long period of self-isolation, and I thought I’d remind you how it’s normal to have struggles and get our feelings hurt when we receive comments about our bodies. We also discuss why we should start gearing conversations away from bodies altogether, and why sometimes even comments that come from a good place or are even phrased as compliments can be harmful for people who have struggled with food and/or body image issues. I’ll also share some inspiring videos on positive body image and the effects of the inner banter we have with ourselves, and I give you my favorite comments to say or give to others, that don’t focus on bodies or appearance.
