Why is my body never good enough?

Blanche Anderson, 30

My entry explores the feelings of disappointment in relation to gaining weight. A feeling a lot of us have felt – especially those with eating disorders, large or small. It touches upon binge eating and the chastising that comes with that. It’s a reminder of how we speak to ourselves in a harsher way than we would ever do to others and also explores ‘perfectionism’ and what that means to different people, including how one measures ones self worth. It’s a current and relatable topic as there is no doubt, now more than ever, there is an external pressure to look a certain way.
