Body Image

A perception about body due to combination of attitude, feelings, thoughts, expectations that leads to low self-esteem and persistent anxiety. A predefined belief of society about being attractive is a major cause of self-hatred and poor body image.

Due to the extreme debates focused on media-influenced lifestyle and fashion, we are surrounded by body standards and it is natural to compare ourselves to the online images. In order to prevent its negative effect on our well-being, it is important to test the reasons and most of the time it is about self-improvement, self-evaluation and self-enhancement. Evaluation of our status as compared to people around us to estimate whether it is falling or rising and determine our place in tribal hierarchy, imitating an influential celebrity and further resolving issues that do not allow us to behave as someone perceived to be more successful, and feeling excited after perceiving that we have outperformed someone affects our self-esteem.

People need to realize that perception of an ideal body shape is merely a myth and a hype created by the marketing world to boost sales of relevant products and services. Don't let anyone comment harshly on your body shape, even if you have things to work on. Everyone deserves respect and the myth of perfection is one that we must all accept. We all have a lot to like about ourselves and feel good about, find those attributes that could be eyes, hands, shoulders, legs, or hair and feel good about yourself.
