Summer is just a few I-will-start-on-Mondays away, and overwhelming panic is in the air, what with everyone feeling the constant pressure to be perfect and have a gorgeous body. Never has it been so easy to feel insecure and compare the way we look to other people, but on the flip-side, never has it been so easy to find support and empowerment.
