This is the type of Buzzfeed videos we need. Not the sugar-coated, superficial ones that don't really help anyone. This is a good video and it really made an impact on me, especially the line "No one hates you as much as you hate yourself"
Thank you Buzzfeed... I needed someone to tell me that.

Ooh this one got me good. Everything that he described, even to the exaggeration of the sketches and drawings, is exactly how I see myself; my chest is one of the touchiest subjects, after having been bullied in middle school. It is so great to see some light shed on this issue--how men can also suffer from body image issues and dysmorphia.

I am still learning to love myself. It's a slow process, but it's better and better with each passing year, and that's all I can really hope for.

It's really too bad that I can barely draw even a stick figure, or else I would definitely give that coping mechanism a try!
Simply just love this
Drella Bella
I love this so much I wanna cry.

Try being born with 8 fingers... there's nothing anyone can say that will make me love that

yunno if you're not happy with how you look, you could always stop feeling sorry for yourself and I dunno, eat more, eat less, work out or just do whatever you need to do to appeal to the notion of whatever "loving your body" means to you.
Matilde Corazza
loved this video
Plot twist: she was being sarcastic

This made my soul happy. I have PTSD and depression issues. it has been a loooong winter here in Canada . Today, I thought i would try on some spring and summer clothes at the mall. I was so frustrated to see that i have eased my depression with food this winter, and gained quite a bit of weight . Been beating myself up about it since getting back this afternoon. I need to remember that im my toughest critic

Why would anyone dislike this video
Lucas Gaywad ;3
i have a bad view of my body image too..i have been overweight since i was little...i always think it was because i was so small as a baby but i think its because i was just given everything and wasnt told that im older its so hard to lose weight especially since im not very active and tend to lose my breath easily and stuff and being a transgender male doesnt help either bc you feel so disgusted by what you see in the mirror trying to create the perfect image of who you are. maybe one day ill get to where you are but i do hope that day comes soon bc im tired of feeling so self-conscious of my own body.

Rachel Rose

it actually begins with changing your perception after all.

Now this is the type of quality content I'd like to see @ BuzzFeed
Amy Sanchez
congratulations buzzfeed, this is actually things I'd love to watch
I blame the media.
You shouldn't care about how your body looks.
Care about your health, and the rest will fall into place.
mariah kake
I never comment but this video truly means something to me on a next level . I'm really glad I've seen this so thanks .
Bronwyn Miles
As someone who suffered from anorexia and bulimia going through high school, and is still learning to see myself as I am, this video was really inspiring, so thanks 😊❤️
Alexis Holguin

Ifeanyi Nwonye
I think it's great Buzzfeed seems to be now addressing body image issues of men and not exclusive to just women. Good job buzzfeed, gold star for you
Annette Wong
I cried watching this. As someone who suffers from body dismorphia and who has recovered from anorexia only to result in binge eating disorder...watching BuzzFeed constantly cover fitness videos of people loosing weight and looking amazing has been so damaging to my self esteem. This has been a great video thanks so much for doing this.
