Aesthetic

We all care about how we look, and our feelings about our appearance can vary depending on the day, our mood, and the Instagram post.

All the BS “beauty is everywhere” IG posts aside, we do deep down care about how we look. It is to a great degree biologically a reflection of our health. We don’t need a shredded six pack but that is the furthest extent of that path.

Having come from a very unhealthy place, I too, on occasion, feel like shit about the way I look. I get down on the lingering, and permanent, signs of what a past me has done to my body. Some of it I can, can am working to, clean up. Some of it will never go away and I have to come to terms with that.

It doesn’t mean that in a down moment, when I’m feeling really shitty about the way I look, that I’m a good or bad person. It’s just how we are. I’m constantly going through phases of being ok with how I look, not being ok with it, and also having the gumption to do something about it, and not having any will power to.
