Example: Acknowledge your physical uniqueness– “Getting from the person who you were growing up to the person who are you becoming takes owning what you have gone through in your life – both the good and the bad. Most likely someone has commented on your body at some point in your life. And you remember what they said because it affected you. The temptation is always going to be to run from the part in your life story that you wish wasn’t there, and in this case, it’s the part of your life story that has to deal with what you look like.”
