Valentine’s Day Body Issues

So Valentine’s Day is this week! Some of you might be like “YAY”, some of you might be like “Who Cares!”. If you’re one of the “who cares” people, I get it, I’m not here to change your mind. But I am writing this blog this week because for some people Valentines Day is a day of romance and being with their significant other and based off of a conversation I had with a friend the other day, it brings up body image issues for her.
Anytime she’s intimate with her husband; she doesn’t like the way she looks, naked or otherwise. This rung true for me BIG TIME. Why, because still today, I sometimes feel like the fat guy, or I feel like the work I’ve put in isn’t enough to make me happy with what I see in the mirror. I also remember having serious body image issues when I was overweight and not liking the way I looked naked, let alone in clothes. So where am I going with this? Let’s talk about being naked! As some of you may know, I produce Shaun T’s podcast Trust and Believe and for two weeks in January, he talked about this very thing. The second part, he interviewed me, and we had a long discussion about being naked and body image issues. I invite you to take a listen and enjoy it, learn from it and open yourself up to explore it in your head. See if you have some of the same issues, or if you’re one of the ones who has no issues (and I’m extremely happy for you if you are).
My last thing, if you are fed up with your body image issues and want to work on it, please feel free to contact Alisha or myself. We get it! We know the struggles you’re going through, and we have been there. We genuinely want to help you if you’re ready.
We want your Valentines Days to be amazing for years to come and for you to be happy in your skin!
