Why do we say things to ourselves that we would never say to our best friends?
Two women were brave enough to get very honest about the feelings they have toward their bodies in a video for The Scene.
The two best friends wrote down things they don’t like about their own bodies. But in the video, the women said the comments out loud and directed them to each other.
Alyssa, on the right, is an actress who struggles with anorexia. Tiffany, on the left, is a producer who struggles with body image.
After they were done reading their comments, they sympathized with each other for the feelings they had towards their bodies.
After a week, the women came back together for the video to talk about their reactions.
The video ends with the powerful message, “Be a best friend to yourself.”
