As children, many of us noticed that the elders could sometimes be the most rude members of our families. My grandfather never ceased to amaze me when visiting after spending time apart. “Gal you gettin’ right fat!” Needless to say, that voice and others like it stayed in my head past those visits. Eventually leading down the road of eating disorders and body image issues. I’ve asked many people in interviews what they would tell their younger selves. I would send 13 year old me this Daily Dose of Doll, keep scrolling to watch.
“The eyes of others our prisons; their thoughts our cages.”
― Virginia Woolf
