sadly it is a great influence because i am so acutely aware all the time. we are surrounded by so many negative reminders that reinforce our assessments of ourselves.
but i watched an interview of a lady who has written - CRAVINGS how religion and bringing God into your life can help you to over come any inadequacies we feel - we can make an image adjustment. i have always had God in my life and prayer - but she frames things in a new light. she talks about how it has affected her experience in making herself much more self accepting.
i also saw the russian model turned skeleton on the news - the illness of anorexia - she should weigh about 140 and only weighs 59 pounds. i have no idea how she walks or talks - it is shocking, and very sad..
so i try to put perspective and sensibility into my daily life -
AND extending any kindness to other living creatures - helps a lot.
thank you for this question - it is an important one and every person should contemplate it and be very honest and sincere in trying to ACCEPT themselves unconditionally.
God does. BB
