Mindfulness allows me to let go. Afterwards the reactions to others' negativity and my inner critic is subdued. I say to myself, "I'm perfectly beautiful with all my scars. God made me. I'm a work in progress like everybody else."
My regular practice of mindfulness, and then of being present with myself and my flaws has been so helpful for my self esteem and body image in my head.
What about you? Any thoughts on yoga?
