More than half of 17-year-old American youths are unhappy with their physique. A bad body image might affect self-esteem in the future, leading to eating disorders or even despair. In this situation, having a partner who is unable to assist you mentally and physically can be even more distressing.

It’s about physical attraction.

It’s difficult to dispute that body image plays a huge role in our society. Even when people began to stand up for themselves and learn to accept their bodies’ defects, the urge to look ideal persists. Unfortunately, people often fall in love because they find one other’s physicality attractive, rather than because they have a mental connection.

Time brings change.

When a relationship is based solely on physical attractiveness, it is likely to be short-lived. As we get older, our bodies change, and not always in the ways we want them to. Stress, medication, sicknesses, our mental condition, and even ageing take their toll on us, causing us to grow or shrink in size.

Make things clear.

Instead of obsessing on your partner’s physical changes, try to encourage them to appreciate them! Be open and honest with your partner about what happened and what upsets them. You can come up with a strategy to fix the situation if you work together. However, just because the changes in their body can’t be readily reversed doesn’t mean you have to stop loving them and leave.

Learn to accept themselves as they are.

It may appear to be a true test of your partnership. And the only way to get through it is to learn to love your mate in every detail. It’s also your responsibility to teach them how to accept themselves and tell them that your sentiments are still strong. After all, your negative attitude toward their bodies may only harm them and diminish their self-esteem tremendously.

Grow together.

Another crucial skill to master in order to maintain a successful relationship is to accept your partner for who they are. Knowing and embracing their mental faults isn’t the only way to like them as a person; it’s also about simply enjoying being around them. Your love will be truly powerful if you develop a solid connection with each other, and your body image will play less of a role.

Are you satisfied with your physical appearance? Is your lover accepting of your physical changes? Let’s talk about it in the comments!
