In her interview with Mistake Club Tovah mentions that feeling fat or ugly has truly nothing to do with the way we look. She talks about how society emphasizes the wrong things in life and how we need to focus on what really matters like our relationships. Another interesting point is 'you don't have to love your body'. There is so much that we should appreciate about the functionality of our body and it is important to recognize those things instead of focusing on what we think we should look like. Tovah's insights are priceless and I highly recommend that you take the time to watch the videos below.
