Body Image

When was the last time you had a positive thought about your body?

For many, it’s been a long, long time.

“Body image is something that most deal with from early on, regardless of what happens in their lives.

I think society has a lot to answer for, with Photoshopping and [digitally] altering pictures. Because we always have this altered view of what we should be and should look like.

If we viewed ourselves differently, we wouldn’t be so hard on ourselves and we wouldn’t be so hard on each other. We’ve got another generation coming up that are looking to us as examples.”
