Did you know that 6 out of 10 girls avoid activities because they feel badly about the way they look? In school, I was one of those 6 girls. One particular moment that stands out to me is an incident after gym class when I was in grade nine.
I’ve always been shy to change in front of others in public change rooms so after gym class each day in high school, I’d change in a bathroom stall while the my other classmates chatted and changed in the dressing room area. One day I overheard the girls talking about my legs and I was horrified. They obviously had no idea that I was changing in one of the stalls and could hear everything that they were saying. They were making comments about how terrible my legs looked and they were wondering why I would wear shorts when my legs looked the way they did.
