Dr. Risk’s Thoughts
Our world is fraught with anxiety and image issues. We are overloaded with information, and most of that is doctored and photoshopped. We all grew up comparing ourselves to others, and feel our own inadequacies. This was an interesting conversation to have, as it allowed me to realize we all have similar issues and thoughts. It’s important to learn to recognize our own shortcomings or thoughts so that we can work on them and feel better empowered.
