Default Re: Summer makes me feel SO much worse

I actually "dropped a safety behaviour" this week by going alone to a beach for a swim. It was OK when hardly anyone was around, but before long there were young women with tanned, flawless bodies EVERYWHERE. I literally didn't see a single woman with cellulite or blotchy white skin. Why do I never see young guys with amazing bodies walking around anywhere?? Exposure therapy is hell and does not work, imo. Just because I force myself to do stuff I hate it doesn't make me hate it any less.

Last summer I tried going to a beach with my partner and I got myself into such a state that I self-harmed. We got cut off by the tide and had to wade through to the main beach which was crowded, so I felt totally humiliated while my boyfriend got a close-up look at all these hot women. He KNOWS how much it upsets me but he never turns away, which I find very disrespectful when I'm standing right next to him.
