5 Ways to Overcome Body Shame

body shame

Is body shame keeping you from dating or getting naked with a new partner? In this video, you’ll learn 5 ways to overcome body shame.

So many people have body shame, especially when it comes to getting naked in front of a partner. With all the toxic messaging in our culture that being thin is ideal for women, it’s hard not to feel ashamed of your body’s perceived imperfections. Some of us get those shaming messages that we’re eating too much and getting too chubby as early as five years old. And those external voices become internal voices, no matter what we look like.

Those voices sound like, ‘I hate my body, I need to lose 20 pounds before I date, I need to whip my body into shape, I need to change my body in order to feel attractive.’ And that leads to a spiral of self-loathing that keeps us stuck and single.

Both men and women are susceptible to body shame. But it’s never too late to start overcoming shame about your body and start working toward body acceptance.

Do you make the first move in dating, or are you still dating like it’s 1984? Many of us have been taught to always let men pursue us and never make the first move or it will turn a man off. Men hunt, women gather. If women have become so much more powerful at work the past few decades, isn’t it time for dating to evolve, too?

As women, we are more than capable of seeking out what—and who—we want. If we’re strong and successful in life, why aren’t we encouraged to be bold when it comes to finding love? Why should we have to sit back and passively wait for the men we like to choose us?
