Growing up, i always had a love-hate-relationship with my body. I myself never really had an issue with it but growing up and seeing very trained muscle men as the standard of how a man should look like to be seen as attractive and desirable, it made me question my own appearance a lot. I felt unattractive and had the constant feeling that people judge my body, think i am too skinny, too feminine, too weird. It got to a point where i felt extremely uncomfortable showing my body. I always tried to cover as much up as possible, never went swimming because i knew i had to take my shirt off and tried to never put any attention on it. I hated wearing Short sleeved shirts because you could see my arms, which i hated the most about my body.
A lot of people think "Skinny-Shaming" is not a thing but that is wrong! As a person that has a very slender body you get judged in our society aswell, especially if you are male. People think you don't eat, have a psychological issue or you're trying to be skinny for attention. Yes, you don't get bullied and judged as much as people with over-weight but there is no denying in the fact that you get shamed for your body aswell. It took a lot of time for me to feel comfortable in my body, to accept it and to start loving it. I was born with this body and i want to feel comfortable in it and don't change it for society although it wants me to change something about it. Drag helped me a lot finding piece and love with and for my body and i am on a constant journey of finding more and more love for it.
As some last words to this post: Never feel ashamed for your body! It does not matter what society says! If you're healthy it does not matter what other people think about it! Love and embrace yourself! Because the first person that has to love you is you!
