The Cruelty of Comparison

by Leisa on January 12, 2016

Body image is a very evocative issue. I am endlessly fascinated with the media obsession of there only being one size and shape that is attractive in women, and if you don’t fit into that flawless design, then you are either unhealthy, lazy or eating all the wrong foods. There is quite a push for
