Sadly, body bashing and shaming is the norm for most women. It is so automatic, it often goes unnoticed. The judgments. The guilt. The disgust. The jealousy. The comparison. It feels awful.
The journey from body hatred and disconnection, to body acceptance and eventual love, is just that. A journey. There is no certain timeline in which to follow. There is no “right” amount of time it should take. It is highly individual. It is messy. There are many up’s and down’s on the path.
