babe dont worry, the road to self-acceptance is long!! and it’s different for everybody!! you shouldn’t feel ashamed at all, we all go through different steps to loving ourselves, and just bc you don’t follow the same steps are someone else doesn’t mean a single thing besides you still have some stretch of road to cross
i’d suggest talking to yr bf about the matter!! telling him something like, “right now i’m not v confident in my body so i would appreciate you not bringing it up” might work? just let him know that topics like that aren’t something you’d like to discuss.
don’t worry hon, someday you’ll get there. we’re all different in our own ways, and some of us are more sensitive to words than others, and that’s fine bc we all come from different places in body-acceptance.
