Why is it our Body image and identity is defined by the television, other people and old men??
We are all trying to change something about ourselves, our hair, stomach, thighs??? I am in the image business and it amazes how many women and what those women will do just to look good.

Our body image and identities are only defined by tv, other people and (any) men IF WE LET THEM! If we accept ourselves the way we are and change those things we cannot accept, that is how we find inner peace and self-love.
