Accept Your Body African Proverbs

Accept your body African proverb lesson is similar to the sculpture Bronskvinnorna or The Women of Bronze in Växjö, Sweden. The sculpture is a visual of body dysmorphic disorder when you have a distorted body image, any part of your body, and see yourself as ugly and disfigured obsessing over your appearance.

The Bronskvinnorna sculpture is a reaction to the accelerating body fixation of our time and reminds us to be proud of ourselves and that all people have equal value.

Many of us go through life feeling less than loving toward our own bodies. We believe we are not attractive enough, flawed in one way or another.

Learning to accept, appreciate, and even love every aspect of our bodies African proverbs teach us we are free to enjoy richer, more intimate relationships when we first love ourselves.
