What does self image mean to you? Does it mean how you feel about your body? How you look? What does it mean when someone says, “he’s comfortable in his skin?”
When my children were little I’d tell them, “it’s not what you look like on the outside, it’s what’s in your heart.” By the time they were teens they countered with, ” Mom, you’re wrong. It does matter what you look like on the outside!” What could I say? “Well, ya, sort of, but physical beauty fades and who you are on the inside is what’s important.”
When we’re teens, it is about what we look like on the outside! As we age, it’s about embracing those “inner” qualities. There’s not much choice, really. We can’t change the way we look or stop the aging process, but we can change the way we think about and talk to ourselves.
