These two (!) books encourages men and women, whatever their size, shape, and colour, to work toward feeling wonderful about themselves despite today’s media-saturated culture
Self image is how we feel about ourselves as people, as human beings. It’s who you are as a person from the soul; self esteem. If you’re a good giving and caring person, a good parent, a great friend or sibling. Body image and self image for most everyone go hand in hand. You may have great body image but a poor self image; poor self esteem.
As you consider the role that your body image plays in your life, here are five truths to consider: You are allowed to like parts of yourself. You are also allowed to dislike parts of yourself. You are allowed to want to change yourself. You are also allowed to not want to change. You are allowed to find a body image culture that works for you.
Body image is the mental representation an individual creates of themselves, but it may or may not bear any relation to how one actually appears. Body image is subject to all kinds of distortions. This image was most likely formed as a result of the criticism that you have received about your looks when you were a child.
