Day 2: Your Favorite Body Part
Oh man, this one was hard. This was supposed to be posted a couple days ago, but I really had no idea what to write about because I don’t have a favorite body part. There’s parts of me that I like sometimessss, but not really a favorite.
So this photo is from a while back. I was trying on a skirt I’d never dream of wearing in public. Not back then, at least. I’m much more comfortable with myself now. I can now look at this photo and know that I look damned good. (Also, I regret not buying that skirt.)
Back then, however, I wouldn’t wear this skirt because I had a problem with my hips and thighs. I used to think that they were too narrow in comparison to my upper body. On their own, I thought they looked alright, but not when combined with the rest of me. Does that make sense? I saw myself parts that didn’t fit when put together. Big boobs on man shoulders, hips too narrow for my bigger belly. That sounds so fucked up to me now, but that’s how I felt back then.
It’s because of these thoughts that I need to do body positivity challenges like these. I need to remind myself that I am more than just the sum of my parts.
