Apologies for the cryptic title, what I mean is that this topic is for things about your physical body (apart from your mental mind) that just make you sad sometimes. This is a place to express our feelings about our bodies, and hopefully it will make you feel a little bit better.

For a while I have struggled with disassociation and it make me sad that sometimes I can't feel like I am actually in my human form

Sometimes I also feel like I should not be my gender, but also not the opposite gender because sometimes I wonder why I was even put in this body, though I am learning to cope and feel more present

I hate my gut. Tryna lose some weight. I also hate my stretch marks on my stomach and around my breasts. I hate my acne on my shoulders and the scars from it. Nothing too bad though, I can cover up most of the things I hate about myself so not too bad :/

Gosh I’m really sorry to hear that. Is there a way you can practice some self love? Otherwise we are all humans who have been given a skin sack body to make use of some how, and there are no exchanges, you get what you get😆but you can do some things to change it too

Haha pretty much. My lack of self love lies more in my mind than focusing on my body tbh. It hurts bc I can’t cover that up with jeans I like y’know? 🫠

I just tend to default to self-depreciation when talking about myself even if the conversation doesn’t merit it and I can’t help it :(

it’s just normal for me and I’m not like, thinking about it and my mom still scolds me for it :/

To that is actually so deep and so funny. Like don’t we all wish we could cover that up😂 and sometimes I just find myself impulsively saying weird wimpy things about myself too, like i don’t want to let myself be pushed around by myself or others if that makes sense. But ya, working on it :/

Hi this is Catsup, one of the support mentors.  I just wanted to comment on what a kind topic that was to post!  Body image issues can feel very isolating and talking about them can be so helpful for knowing you are not alone. :)

Hi Catsup👋🏽 Thank you, and I agree. I know for me, I really don’t care how my body looks, I don’t really look in mirrors often. But I get down about how it ✨feels✨ And they are kinda one and the same.
