Very often, teenagers find themselves in situations where they are not satisfied and feel unhappy with some part of their looks. It can cause them nervousness, dissatisfaction with themselves and reduce their self-esteem.
The appearance of a negative body image can begin at a surprisingly early age. According to a 2020 research review, 40 to 50 percent of first- and second-graders already don’t like some aspect of their body. When bodies begin changing during puberty, that dissatisfaction can deepen.
This does not happen to all teenagers, but those who find themselves in such a situation, want to make some kind of changes about their body.
We can overcome this problem only if we understand we don’t need a perfect body to have a good body image. When we like our body as it is, we boost our body image and our self-esteem too.
