“I just think that the body, for one, is beautiful too. We all have one and probably most of us don’t necessarily love it the way that we probably should. I don’t think we’re really taught to love living in the skin that we have and I don’t necessarily like being naked… it actually makes me extremely uncomfortable. But I think it’s important to have moments where you’re forced to just see yourself without this extra coating of fluff and to be like, no, this (body) keeps me up every day. This is what I am inside of and feel inside of and it can be beautiful. I think the more we see that the easier that becomes.”
