This episode was very emotional and moving for me. I don’t know a woman who doesn’t have a negative relationship with her body, including me. There’s so much self-loathing about the skin we are in. Many women feel betrayed by their own bodies, and I don’t think we are aware that the more we self-loathe, the more the beauty industry wins. It’s tragic. This conversation with Nina is incredibly important and revealing.
