I love this photoset, because it’s the only one I’ve seen that shows that guys have problems with self image as well. I’m not trying to demean the fact that the media definitely has much more unrealistic expectations of women than of men, but it’s nice that someone acknowledged that many men also suffer from some of the same things women do, because gender does not define your feelings.
It’s ok to not like what you see in the mirror, and more people need I recognize that guys struggle with their body image just as much as us girls do.
to be honest i am really shitty with how i feel about me
i lie to myself and tell myself i am the greatest thing ever
when really i hate me and hate what ive become
my gut is the worste
and i play it off like im proud of it
i just lie to myself
There have been so many times where I’ve thought about my past body-image issues, and then remembered that there are guys who go through this, but it never gets talked about. And when it is talked about, they’re made fun of because apparently being sensitive about something is the worst thing a man can do. I just want to give you all a hug. It’ll be okay. You’re all great.
