Untold Solh | My Journey To Body Positivity

Growing up, I never really paid much attention to my body. I was always active, playing sports and running around with friends. It wasn't until I entered my twenties that I started to become more aware of my body image.

It all started when I went off to college. Suddenly I was surrounded by all these beautiful, thin girls who seemed to effortlessly maintain their bodies. I started comparing myself to them, feeling self-conscious about my own figure. I started to scrutinize every inch of my body, picking out all the flaws and imperfections.

I became obsessed with weighing myself, convinced that if I could just lose a few kilograms, I would finally be happy with my body. I tried every fad diet and exercise routine, but nothing seemed to work. The more I focused on my weight, the worse I felt about myself. I started to isolate myself, avoiding social events and skipping meals. I was constantly unhappy with how I looked, convinced that I wasn't good enough. I would spend hours in front of the mirror, pinching and prodding at my body, wanting it to change.

My obsession with my body image started to affect every aspect of my life. I avoided dating, convinced that no one would find me attractive. I turned down opportunities and experiences because I was too self-conscious about my appearance. I was constantly consumed by thoughts of how I looked, unable to focus on anything else.

It wasn't until I hit rock bottom that I realized I needed to make a change. I sought help from a therapist, who helped me confront the deep-rooted issues that were causing me to fixate on my body image. Through therapy, I learned to accept and love myself for who I am, flaws and all.

I started to focus on being healthy rather than being skinny. I found ways to exercise that brought me joy, whether it was going for a hike or taking a dance class. I stopped restricting myself from foods I enjoyed and started to listen to my body's hunger cues. Slowly, I started to feel more comfortable in my own skin. I stopped comparing myself to others and instead focused on my own journey to self-acceptance. I surrounded myself with positive influences who uplifted me and reminded me of my worth.

Today, I can say that I am in a much better place when it comes to my body image. I still have my bad days, but I no longer let my appearance dictate my happiness. I have learned to appreciate my body for all that it does for me and to treat it with kindness and respect.

It's been a long and difficult journey, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. My struggles with body image have taught me invaluable lessons about self-love and acceptance. I may not have the perfect body, but I have a healthy body and a happy soul, and that's all that matters in the end.
