In this episode, we meet Jenny, 42, who is ready for a serious relationship after many years of monogamy. But she feels very self-conscious about her body, so much so that it feels almost impossible to open up to new love. Jenny’s last relationship ended in her late 20s, and ever since, she’s thrown herself into work and tried to ignore both the deep desire for a romantic relationship, and the poor body image that has prevented her from finding it.
In her eating psychology coaching session, Jenny works with founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, Marc David. As Jenny shares, she’s avoided dating out of fear that she’ll be rejected, telling herself that she’ll be better able to date once she’s happier with her body.
As Marc reflects, so many of us assume that others hold the same judgments of ourselves and our bodies that we do. But very rarely is this actually the case.
Others usually observe what’s good about us: the beauty in our curves, the special way we smile, or the twinkle in our eyes. As well as what makes us attractive on the inside … our kindness, caring, sense of humor, generosity, quirkiness, and so much more.
For all of us learning to love and accept ourselves (and hey, that’s most of us!), this episode is for you.
