Do I Have a Problem with Body Image?

Now more than ever, many teenagers have problems with how they look. They have developed the habit of condemning the vessel that protects their being and coordinates all their doings. A home for their mind and emotional well-being. If you are not content with your physical appearance and cannot accept how you look, you may have a problem with body image.

What causes issues with body image?

The main cause for body image issues is the media, especially social media. Much of the media is designed to sell something or shape your thinking. Advertisers frequently use “beautiful people” to get you to buy products and services. Then your perfectionist human brain starts to compare yourself to what you see in the media.
