As a 36 year old that has never felt comfortable with any part of their own body before, no matter what shape it’s been in, I totally feel you.

I’m starting to get there though.

I saw a study that said it takes the average person until they are in about their 60’s before they are comfortable with their own bodies. And then you see young people shaming older folks for enjoying nude beaches.

Sometimes it feels hard to win in this life, I tell ya!

Thanks for continuing to share your story, Shannon. Great piece here.
