Today I celebrated International Women’s Day in a very interesting way, literally in my underwear in front of a room of strangers.
As part of GRITYARD’s Women’s Day event, Rock The Naked Truth and sloggi had a self-confidence segment where 5 of us (in the latest sloggi GO Allround) talked to the audience about our struggles with our body and how we overcame them. This is the second time RTNT is working with sloggi and I am so grateful for brands like these who believe in the message I’m pushing out.
It’s not easy to strip down to our underwear in front of strangers and bare our souls about our insecurities, but I am so proud of these four beautiful ladies for being brave and doing this with me.
I hope those who came today took home valuable learnings from our stories. I understand how hard it can be to love our bodies but it is not impossible.
It was so tough getting out of that dark place – where I hated myself, hated how I looked, did everything I could just to be skinny, inflicted self-harm to punish myself and constantly felt inadequate – and I wish no one has to go through what I did.
Your body is yours to live in for all your life. It is the longest and most permanent relationship you will have in this lifetime, so build a strong and healthy relationship with your body.
Go on and discover how amazing your body is, and how capable it actually is. We come in different shapes and sizes, and that’s what makes each of us unique and special.
Just be YOU.
P.S. Each of us is wearing the new sloggi GO Allround range that only comes in ONE size. The material is stretchable and adaptable, to fit your body regardless of what shape you are. How cool is that!
