DO PEOPLE’S OPINIONS SHAPE YOUR BODY IMAGE?

I naturally have a fast metabolism and I have been a vegetarian for the majority of my life so if I am not watching the nutrients I get from my food it’s very easy for me to lose the little muscle I have. When people make comments like “oho kasto dublako”, “you look so skinny” it used to bother me and stress me out which did me no good.

After doing a lot of self-reflection I realised that it’s my own opinion on my body that matters to me more than other people’s opinions. It’s important for me to like my own body because if I don’t feel physically fit I can’t feel mentally fit either. Exercise and meditation are two things I practice so that I feel good about myself. When I know that I am in good shape, it doesn’t matter what other people think. When I know I am not, it’s time to get to work!
