What I Thought Would Fix My Body Image: Part Two (Marriage) Day 6

by | Apr 17, 2021 | Spring Break Free Course

Yesterday, I shared one way I (ineffectively) tried to fix my body image. Truth is, after I tried and it failed, I wasn’t all that surprised. Why?

Boy was I wrong. Hear all about it and read about it on the blog by clicking here: https://comparedtowho.me/what-i-thought- would-fix-my-body-image-part-two-marriage

I’ve blogged about this a bit before, so if you want to read more, you can do that here or here. Or, if you just want to hear how it happened–straight from the horse’s (embarrassed) mouth.

Questions for reflection

If you are single, have you ever thought “If I just had a man . . .I wouldn’t struggle?” (It’s okay if you did, that’s what I believed!
