    I love this, 50 Ways to Embrace…the movie is fun but temporary…self-love and self-respect are lifelong.

    I just cried through your film. Always, having struggled with body image (even when I was the “perfect weight”. Both my parents were and still are obbesssed with outer beauty. I was put into beauty pageants at the age of four years old, and it was fun (in the beginning). Then, when we would be back stage before the pageant, my Mother would start making comments like, “You really better give it your best in modeling and talent today, because that girl is prettier than you.” Then, I became self-conscious all the time, and began crying on stage. I went from winning to losing, because of it. Of course, my Father would always lecture me all the way home in everything I did wrong. I heard other parents doing things like this to their children too…very sad. So, by the time, I was eight years old, they pulled me out of the pageants, but unfortunately, the ridicul didn’t stop. Thank you so much for your wonderful film! If more people were like you in this world it would surely be a better place! God bless😊
