Taylor Swift Opens up About Her Struggle With Body Positivity
Taylor Swift Opens up About Her Struggle With Body Positivity .
Swift recently talked about approaching her 30th birthday and how she’s had to learn to love her body.
She described her 20s as a process similar to trying on a bunch of costumes before finally being able to walk in a regular outfit.
According to Swift, part of that journey was coming to terms with the “toxic messages” being sent by society.
One thing going into my 30s that I'm really stoked about is like I now can really recognize and diagnose, like, toxic messages being sent to me by society, by culture about, like, my body … I’m a woman.
I'm not a coat hanger, Taylor Swift, to 'British Vogue'.
Swift learned not to use her body as an “exercise of control” when life becomes too hectic but instead focuses on feeling “healthy in life.”.
I need to feel healthy in my life and I need to take pleasure in food and I need to not use my body as like an exercise of control when I feel out of control in my life, Taylor Swift, to 'British Vogue'.
As she described in an article for ‘Elle’ earlier this year, Swift has spent a lot of time working to “[accept her] body every day.”.
I learned to stop hating every ounce of fat on my body.
I worked hard to retrain my brain that a little extra weight means curves, shinier hair, and more energy … There is no quick fix.
I work on accepting my body every day, Taylor Swift, to 'Elle'
