Remember that what you scroll through your social media feed, it is a highlight reel of the most flattering, best lit, sometimes photoshopped, always filtered, and heavily crafted versions of people’s reality.
What you don’t see is people sucking their belly in, twisting their bodies, and taking a hundred photos to find the perfect angle.
You don’t see those same people having a bad day, getting bloated, feeling stressed, and breaking down.
Because we’re only exposed to the highlight reel, it’s easy to compare ourselves to the images we see, and quickly start to feel bad about ourselves. In time, we try to take measures into our own hands to “fix” what’s wrong with us in order to better compete with these “perfect” people we see.
To break this cycle, purge your social media so that you’re no longer following people or accounts that make you feel “less than.” Instead, look up body-positive accounts that celebrate intuitive eating, body acceptance, and diversity.
