Body positivity is a societal movement endorsing the acceptance and appreciation of all body forms, irrespective of prevailing beauty norms.
It motivates individuals to fully accept their physical attributes, including aspects often regarded as flaws.
This concept transcends mere self-love; it’s a powerful declaration that each body, with its distinct size, shape, color and capacity, is worthy of respect and admiration.
Body positivity aims to question and refine our perceptions of physical attractiveness, fostering a broader, more compassionate understanding of ourselves and others.
It inspires us to commend our bodies for their functionality and resilience, rather than fixating solely on aesthetic appeal.
