One of the biggest themes of 2016 was self-worth. Body shaming, fat shaming, all came into being as people battled against convention standards of beauty and insisted they didn't matter. The fact is though, what you look like can be a big factor in your daily life. We all, at the end of the day, want to look in the mirror and be happy about what we see. Unfortunately, that just isn't the case for many of us, no matter how many positive affirmations you repeat to yourself. Shaming people for pointing out those flaws also don't help. People are mean, but at the heart of it, sometimes a little bit of shaming is the push we need to make better choices and turn things around. Marsha Meddleberg was one of those women who suffered with low-self esteem and her appearance eventually took over her life.
