    Changing The Way We Think To Change The Way The Way We Feel

    I do also wish women would love themselves. I see so many beautiful women who don't like themselves for whatever reason it could be the way they look, how many men they have been with, or a complex developed a child for some reason. Here are two real life examples one is my own...

    Myself Included....

    I think women need to be kinder to each other. I can't tell you how many women I've met that have some sort of horrible complex about some fault that doesn't even exist, that all stemmed from something that some other woman said to them or about them.

    From A Guy's Perspective

    I have so many female friends (mostly here on EP) that have such a negative image of themselves.  They see themselves as unloveable or unattractive or not worthy of being desired intimately.  My heart goes out to all of them.  Frankly, some of these women are very desirable...

    Love One Another...Love Yourself.

    I was working a twelve hour shift in an ER a couple of years ago, and it was extremely busy.  The kind of day where you don't have time to eat, use the restroom, or sit for even a second.  Paperwork was piling up on my desk, the nurse interuppted every 5 minutes with a...

    Love Thyself

    I believe everyone should love themselves for who they are, not what they are - not just women. I know it's difficult, but we all have to find the inner strength to accept ourselves. Easier said than done considering the fact that we live in a society that puts a strong emphasis...

    Don't Forget To Be Yourself

    It breaks my heart when I hear that my girlfriends either wish that they were more beautiful or could lose a few pounds... And they're only in their teenage years. I don't know who or what is putting this idea of "I need to be pretty to be happy" into their heads. Maybe it's a...

    But I Understand It Can Be Difficult.

     Like a lot of other people, I'm hardest on myself. I think we all just need to give ourselves a little slack sometimes. No one's perfect, but we expect ourselves to be. When it comes to body image, especially, more women should take on the sentiments of Eve's Rib, an...

    I Really Wish They Would

    There are so many beautiful women in the world and so many don't see that in themselves. It seems to be a steadily growing epidemic and it's heartbreaking. There are men too that don't love themselves. I know because I was one of them. Maybe the world would be a better place if...

    Spectrum Extremes

    I couldn't agree with the title of this group more.  Kudo's to Ms.Valentine for making it.  You could say it for both men and women, but women do tend to have the problem more often.  I get to a point with my girlfriends where I can't tolerate trash talk about...

    Yes I Wish This Too!

    Because then it would make the lady strong and independent, and then a fantastic mate to enjoy her healthy mind as well as body! I know most men beat women's self esteem down, but I love to build it up and that makes her super sexy then to me!

    A lot if not most women aren't happy with their

    weight or boob, butt, hips size. They may not realize it, but the reason they aren't happy is because they compare themselves subconsciously to the "perfect" women the see on tv. You think women in the cave man days gave a flying sh*t what they looked like? Course not because...
