“Equality is one step down from privilege.” — unknown source
Maintaining a positive body image can be a challenge in the best of times. We are not in the best of times; we are in the middle of a pandemic. If you are struggling, you are not alone.
If you jiggle, you jiggle.
I wish I could walk around with a sign that says “I have lymphedema, stop staring at my legs!” The back would read, “Google it.”
And neither should your body image.
“When people look at my body and be like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so brave,’ it’s like, ‘No, I’m not. I’m just fine. I’m just me. I’m just sexy. If you saw Anne Hathaway in a bikini on a billboard, you wouldn’t call her brave. I just think there’s a double standard when it comes to women.” — Lizzo, in Glamour
