How I Deal With Negative Thoughts About My Body

I believe body image work is something that continues throughout life.  At least I’ve noticed this for myself and I’ll never tell you I’ve made it and don’t struggle anymore.  I’m human and susceptible to having these thoughts creep back into my head.  I created a video to share my thoughts on some recent things that have cropped up for me and what I’m doing to continue to support my growth in this area instead of reverting back to my old ways.
