Difficult to accept and appreciate your body?

Difficult to accept and appreciate your body?

Get a boob job?
Not get a boob job?

So many women ponder this choice.

As a small chested gal, I asked myself these questions for years!

In the early 2000s, when I lived in Atlanta, I dated a guy who told his friends, “The next girl I date will have bigger boobs.”

I said goodbye to him a few days later, and then spent two years seriously considering getting breast enhancements.

[Sincere apology to all the women in Atlanta if I was staring at your chest! LOL! I was genuinely trying to figure out whether bigger breasts would make me happier, more desirable, more lovable.]

Eventually, I opted to not get implants. This is a decision so many women have wrestled with since its inception. Do I? Don’t I?

I have zero judgment if you have. Each and every woman makes her own decisions for her own reasons. And there are a myriad of reasons.

I realized one day it just wasn’t right for me. BUT… it took a while for me to get to a place where I could genuinely accept and appreciate my body. Small chest and all.

For me, letting someone else’s opinion of my body determine my comfort level with my own was a powerless way of being.

Have you ever noticed how much women get bombarded by what our bodies are “supposed” to look like?! It’s constant. Movies. TV. Magazines. Advertising. Social Media. It’s non-stop.

Gloria Steinem says, “Each individual woman’s body demands to be accepted on its own terms.”

I’m with Gloria.
