Real Women Don't Have Curves

Angie Enger

You guys, who am I kidding? Body image is not something that can be summed up or solved in a blog post. But I will say this...

It's hard. Really fricken hard. For everyone. Yes, even *her*.

Our body image causes us to feel invalided by society/culture/ourselves/our friends.  We attempt to validate ourselves by invalidating those we see as our opposite or other. In order for me to feel I'm good, someone else must be bad. (We do this allll the time for thousands of reasons) This doesn't actually make me feel better, just someone else feel worse. "Real women" don't have curves. And they do have curves. And they do and don't have every other kind of body. So let's just be a little kinder to each other, and to ourselves.
