|Women And Body Image - Stunning On The Outside And Dying On The Inside? by healthlink: 1:48pm On May 15, 2010|
Our bodies are our closest environments and yet many women see their bodies as threatening, distasteful, unacceptable and even downright ugly. Why is it that so many women simply do not like their own bodies and what can be done to improve their relationship with the one environment they will carry with them for life?
We learn about our bodies from a young age. Being an infant is a state of total dependency with reliance on our carers for the fulfillment of our most basic needs. To an infant, feeling hungry or cold is a terrifying reality, since, until they come to know the world as separate, they just feel the pain of absence or discomfort without the ability of knowledge that the pain is 'out there' and outside of their bodies. The carer's attunement to the baby's needs plays a large part in educating the child to experience the world (initially 'their' body) as threatening or comfortable. Hopefully, appropriate and timely meeting of the infant's needs creates in the child a growing confidence and understanding of their bodily needs. However, this is not always the case.

Your post has nothing to do with "women" and their "body image".
Must you seek attention?
