I’ve been a dancer since a young age, but it wasn’t until I hit puberty that I was told I need to stay thin.
I was around ten and my teacher repeatedly told me that I shouldn’t weigh more than 108 pounds.
It’s been put in my head since a young age that I need to be thin to be successful.
I thought having a negative self body image was okay since I was a dancer.
When I got to middle school it was harder because I wasn’t as petite as my classmate’s, and I was a lot taller.
I still have to look at my body everyday in the mirror and accept that I’m not going to look like the rest of the petite dancers.
I still have a bad body image, but I’m slowly making my way towards accepting myself the way I am.
