Everyone has a body image, which is essentially defined as what we think we look like. A person’s body image is created through a combination of their personal life experiences and external influencers, like culture and society. It is not at all uncommon to feel dissatisfied with your appearance occasionally.

However, some body images issues, like body dysmorphic disorder, are more serious and can interfere with your daily life. Developing a positive body image can significantly improve your happiness. If you are experiencing excessive concern about a perceived physical defect, you may benefit from counseling. A mental health professional can be helpful in dealing with normal, negative body image feelings as well as specific body disorders.
