Learn The 5 Stages Of Body Acceptance From This Trans Man
This time of the year is when everyone examines themselves closely and prepares to make unreasonably drastic resolutions for the coming year. Your resolutions start out strong and positive: reading before bed, waking up at 6am and going to the gym every day, and quoting affirmations in the mirror. Then they slowly taper off, a cocktail here, a bite of cake there, until finally by January 31st you've dissolved into a pile of Hot Cheetos and Netflix on your couch, promising that you'll get that summer body sometime in April.... Or not. Based on The Kübler-Ross model, or the five stages of grief, this trans man has laid out the process of how he learned to accept his body instead of wishing it were different.
