For many years, I lived with a family that idolized thinness. I was never particularly thin, but rather curvy, and food served as one of my comforts and sources of enjoyment. As a child, I always compared myself to others and was jealous of anyone who was thinner. No matter how many times a day I was told that I was beautiful and stunning, I didn't believe it. After a few years, I began a journey of self-growth, a journey that I continue to pursue that remains ongoing. Slowly, I came to accept my curves, eventually feeling proud of my body just the way it is. Though the process of self-acceptance remains a daily struggle, I remind myself each day that I would never want to be anyone else. A significant turning point occurred when I reconnected with a former classmate who confessed to being jealous of my curves. Reflecting on my own past envy of my classmate's skinniness, I realized the pointlessness of comparisons. This experience inspired me to start changing by accepting my unique qualities. I started out on a journey to uncover the exceptional parts of my body and give up on the desire to look like others. I nurtured self-compassion, learning to love myself rather than criticize myself. Being a woman, I'm aware of the societal pressures and unrealistic expectations placed on me, from being a good mother and wife to keeping up a flawless appearance and tidy home. Despite these demands, I always remind myself of self-compassion and my self-worth. Because if I won’t remind myself, then who will?
