12 Body Acceptance Quotes to Feel Comfortable in Your Own Skin | The Health Sessions

12 Body Acceptance Quotes to Feel Comfortable in Your Own Skin

We all have days when we don’t feel happy with our body. Who hasn’t felt conscious about their appearance?

But body acceptance becomes a lot more challenging when it’s not cellulite or pimple you’re concerned about, but scars, serious skin conditions and deformities. Even though you have nothing to be ashamed about, its hard not to worry about what other people will think about your ostomy bag or your extreme swollen ‘Prednison face’.

Plus, how do you accept your own body when it doesn’t work properly? When it causes you pain and heartache every day?

There’s no easy answer, and the road to body acceptance will look different for everybody. But there are some common themes when it comes to loving the skin you’re in.

First of all, stop comparing yourself to others. You’ll never have their exact body. If reading fashion and health magazines or following certain people online gets you down, remove that negativity from your life. Diversify your social media feed; there are so many inspiring spoonies out there rocking their walking aids, insulin pumps and portable catheters!

What’s more, be mindful of your internal dialogue. You wouldn’t constantly put your best friend down with snarky comments, right? So why would you talk to yourself in such a way?

Finally, try to see yourself as a whole person instead of a body with certain physical features and (dis)abilities. You’re so much more than that! Take pride in your smile, your inner strength and the way you cook a mean lasagna.

Hopefully these 12 body acceptance quotes will inspire you to start feeling more comfortable in your own skin.
