Health At Every Size | A Book by Lindo Bacon
Bacon also writes: “your body doesn’t represent your core self. You are many more important things beyond your body: Perhaps you are compassionate, intelligent, articulate, and/or creative. Don’t give your body more power than it deserves; it can’t define you."
I am sharing this quote is for anyone who is struggling or has struggled with self-image. Regardless of what society wants you to believe, your weight, hair color, skin color, disabilities and everything in between DOES NOT DEFINE WHO YOU ARE. These factors don’t define how successful you can be(come). Your body doesn’t determine the love you deserve. It doesn’t determine the type of care you get from medical professionals. And it certainly doesn’t make you any less special than anyone else in this world.
