How to Respect your Body

As a psychotherapist, I view body image as existing on a spectrum based on our experiences, attitudes, and behavior toward ourselves. For most, learning to like the image reflected back in the mirror can be extremely challenging. So, using the liking of the physical body as a metric for body image is likely to fail us. Instead, I mostly focus on feeling good inside one’s body, regardless of feelings towards the outside.
