"I hide my body all the time. It started when I was young, and now two children later and in my early 40s I still hide my body. I guess I never thought about why. The first idea that arrives for me is control. I hide what I can’t control and I show what I can. I was proud to show off my pregnant body. My breasts and stomach were amazing. It’s the only time in my life where I loved parts of my body. Will we ever love our bodies every day?"
"I'm sure that my own body thoughts have taken over my life and I don't know many women that don't feel the same way. The way I feel about my body rules every thought I have from the minute I wake to when I fall asleep. It is exhausting."
"I don't feel as though I get to choose what is beautiful in another person. If we get the opportunity to truly connect, I think it is they who choose to share their beauty with me."
