This past week I was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed, when I came across a post from a friend of mine, Julie Iorio of Ledbetter, Inc. She had a picture of herself, holding up a sign saying, "I am Perfectly Imperfect". Turns out, this was all because of Victoria's Secret's latest campaign, the #perfectbody campaign.
When are we going to get the message that it's not about having a perfect body? That there's no such thing as perfection. That striving for perfection actually leads to more and more self-harm.
