This is wonderful.

Hi Shreeyani! Thank you for writing in. I agree, unfortunately, our partners are in many ways responsible for body issues. I have a friend, who is now faced with crippling body image issues due to her feeling that one of her partners did not find her ‘attractive’. The boomerang being, my friend now finds her validation in men. This is the most real form of self-perpetuated disorder, which is difficult to shake off.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
