Scarred Not Scared - With Michelle Elman

I chat with Michelle Elman – Board Certified Life Coach and creator of the Scarred Not Scared campaign – on her story of having gone through 15 surgeries before the age of 20, the problem with “healthy is the new skinny” and why health is not always a choice. In this episode, we chat about: • Michelle’s relationship to her body over the years having gone through various surgeries that left scars and how she learned to embrace her scars • How her experience with survivor’s guilt created shame and how sharing her story helped her heal • The importance of speaking about our stories to relieve shame • How to get comfortable and accept a changing body • Why body positivity is not necessarily what the mainstream makes it out to be • Why health is not always a choice and the problem with promoting “healthy as the new skinny” • What beautiful means and how Michelle’s perception of this has evolved over the years • How we can make the body positive movement more inclusive • Plus so much more!
