By Waddie G. September 11, 2023

Body positivity is becoming a more widely discussed topic, and for good reason. With the societal pressure to naturally conform to unrealistic beauty standards, it can be easy to fall into negative self-talk and self-doubt. This pressure may be even more pronounced for same-gender-loving individuals, as they may not fit into traditional gender, sexual, or cultural norms. However, it is important to remember that our bodies have no “normal” or “one-size-fits-all” standard.

Body positivity affirmations are positive statements that can help us overcome negative self-talk and embrace our bodies just the way they are. These affirmations can be particularly helpful for same-gender-loving individuals who may struggle with body image issues, dysphoria, or other challenges related to their identity. By repeating these affirmations and shifting our focus to positive energy, we can begin to appreciate and celebrate our bodies for the amazing things they do.
