Some people gave advice that when it comes to getting married, you must know the person first hand or date him for a while before finding his real nature or true color. But that wasn’t the case with me. Even though I’ve been in a relationship with a man for almost eight years, the more I’ve learned we were not meant for each other. However, it took me a long time to admit that I was in an abusive relationship. I was in denial for a long time until it got a toll on me emotionally, physically, and mentally. I’ve dated a man who was nine years older than me and we’ve started out well. But when I’ve decided to break-up with him after a few months of dating, he was very persistent to get back to him which I ended up doing. I guess you can say, I was naive and gullible. In the video below, I’ve discussed more how I’ve finally ended our relationship.
On the other hand, let’s talk about body image. Body image is something I’ve struggled with since I was in my teenage years. Although, I was skinny and size 2, yet I still struggle with my weight and was doing harmful eating habits to my body. There were days that I wouldn’t eat lunch and just chew gum to trick my brain that I was eating when in fact I was only digesting nothing but my own saliva.
However, over time, I have developed acid reflux. Self-acceptance and being comfortable with your own skin are important in developing a healthy relationship with your body. I am not suggesting that you shouldn’t exercise or eat healthy food to stay slim and healthy but we must do it to the extent that is good for our overall well-being.
