It's summer and the heat is so thick it feels miserable to move. All you want to do is jump in a refreshing body of water but unfortunately you don't have a pool and there's no body of water close that would suffice.
Just as you're looking up vacations to Alaska, you get a call from a friend inviting you over to enjoy her pool. You are immediately ecstatic, until she continues by also explain that there will be other people enjoying her pool- some of whom you know and some of whom you don't. Your heart sinks as you hear that other people will be enjoying the pool as well, and mumble that you're not sure if today is good for you, that you'll think about it and get back to her.
You feel the hatred for your body rising up, and the negative self-talk begins to torture you again. You end up in your room, crying on a pile of bathing suits you've just tried on, wishing more than anything that you could simply put on any bathing suit and give yourself what you want- a refreshing dip in a pool. But your negative body image stops you.
Any of this resonate with you?
