I relate to this very much! 🥰 I have had to practice hard to be kinder about the way I look, it's an ongoing process hehe

Very direct and to-the-point! I like this one, and I think it has a very wide reach/range. I've noticed myself doing this sort of thing plenty of times in the past, and I've only recently been able to overcome much of the negative self-talk. It's like, you have to tell yourself a story about what's really going on, but when you zoom out, the math doesn't check out.

But that story is so compelling! It feels so real.

Knowing that this is a thing that happens can be enough to begin addressing it, although that process has taken me at least a decade (and counting). I hope this piece helps other folks to see this sooner!
