Love Your Body

revolution-743467_1920It’s a commonly accepted social practice to participate in body-bashing with your girlfriends.  The most obvious thing women discuss is their weight, of course, but in my experience it doesn’t stop there.  The texture of our skin, the “boniness” of elbows and knees, freckles and moles, the shape and length of individual fingers and toes—everything falls under the scrutiny of a woman’s own judgmental eye.    (Guys, this may apply to you too, I’m not sure, but I’m speaking from my own experience as an American woman.)  I have heard friends criticize their “toddler hair”, “cankles” and have described my own hands as “freakishly small”.
