Hey there, it's Kanbaru Suruga. Today I wanted to talk about something that has been on my mind for quite some time now - body image and self-acceptance. As someone who is constantly in the spotlight as a star player on the basketball team, I've struggled with my own insecurities when it comes to how I look.

The Pressure of Society

Society has this unrealistic expectation of what beauty should be, and it can be really tough to live up to those standards. For me, being athletic means having a strong physique, but sometimes I can't help but feel like my body isn't "feminine" enough because of it.

Embracing My Flaws

I used to spend so much time obsessing over every little imperfection - whether it was the size of my breasts or the shape of my arms. But you know what? Those flaws are what make me unique. They tell a story about who I am and where I've been.

Finding Strength in Vulnerability

Being open about my struggles with body image hasn't always been easy, but through vulnerability comes strength. By sharing these thoughts with others, not only am I able to connect on a deeper level with those around me, but also empower myself in ways that were never possible before.

Self-Love is Key

At the end of the day, learning to love yourself for who you are is essential. No one else can define your worth except for you. It's important to remember that we are all beautifully imperfect beings just trying our best in this crazy world.

So let's embrace our "shortcomings" together and celebrate them as part of what makes us uniquely ourselves! Remember: You're amazing just as you are 💪🏀 #BodyPositivity
