I think I have the opposite of body dysmorphic disorder (body dysmorphia). Body eumorphia? Hmmm. Probably not that.
I feel pretty good about this body that does almost everything I want it to do. I mean, other than the usual insecurities of a woman who doesn't look like a super model. Or a body building competitor. Or a mom who competes in bikini contests.
Sure, I've got body insecurities.
BUT. When I look in my home mirror, I usually feel pretty good about myself. I can clean up fairly well. I am a simple girl, I don't get false lashes/tans/extensions, but I pluck my eyebrows and wear mascara. I do my hair (washing it once a week makes that part easy) and put lotion on.
I look in the mirror at my house and I think, "Good going, Ahhnna. That's the stuff."
I see my surprise reflection in public and I think, "Who is that lady? Holy shenanigans, it's ME?!"
We need to get more lighting in public like my home's. Apparently it is all soft and flattering. Except when I'm nude and then for whatever reason the lighting really changes. It's weird.
