Our body insecurities (and how our partners view them)

How do you deal with your partner’s body issues?

This woman's post about her body and her husband is going viral and it's amazing

Some people feel insecure about their bodies, especially when they are around their partners.

They often say they wish their bodies looked in a certain way, which is likely to kill their self-esteem and self-confidence.

On the other hand, some people are confident enough about their bodies regardless of how they look, and their partners accept them as well.

I just want to say women shouldn’t feel bad because they are having baby, because you are picking up weight and because you can’t lose weight.

Akhona - Caller

There are other qualities that complement that type of the body.
