When it comes to body insecurities, it can be one of the most difficult things to overcome. A lot of the time the fault mostly comes from us, because we mostly accept it because of confirmation bias. This is because we have built the idea in our minds about how we look, therefore whenever other people confirm such things, we begin to accept the appearance of our body, and also rejecting every other idea that doesn’t support it. In several people’s cases, they tend to feel like the small size of their breast isn’t attractive enough, then that feeling of rejecting the fear begins to affect them, then later without them even knowing it, they get trapped in their assumptions.
A recent study has shown that there are ways of dealing with confirmation bias, that is with the use of phototherapy also known as photography therapy. This process help patient realizes that their image is distorted by using portrait photographs as a catalyst. During this process, the photographer captures the essence of the patient in the nudes. This would capture the patient while being in a vulnerable state, and also capturing the sensitive areas of her body. After the sessions, it would help the patient open up and accept their new reality.
Perhaps if you don’t understand phototherapy, then the small documentary film called my small breast and I come highly recommended. The documentary was centered around a woman called Kate bailey, she was suffering from several image insecurities, but most of all she was insecure about her small breast size. Then she tried phototherapy and it completely changed her image. After experiencing phototherapy here are the things that would happen.
