Body image issue
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.

I'm so sick of my "mother" constantly bodyshaming me, i know i shouldn't let it get to me but how long can u go ignoring it all?! it's almost everyday that she says i have nothing in my body even though she knows it's difficult for me to gain weight. i was already insecure because of social media and the beauty standards so anything that she says just adds onto the pile. i look in the mirror and start obssessing over what i should look like. to a certain extent, i have the power to not let society's standards affect me, but when it's your own so-called mother telling you how you're not enough almost every single day, it really gets to me. even my ex had bodyshamed in the past and now im just so insecure all the time. i can't love myself maybe i never will.
