Olivia Blair - Body Dysmorphia


This week Jay welcomes actress Olivia Blair to the podcast. Today, Olivia pursues her passions of acting and film, however she hasn't always been able to live as her authentic self. Olivia first began to struggle with body dysmorphia in high school, when the pressures of media encouraged her to form a distorted body image. Jay reveals that he can relate to Olivia's struggle because he also suffered from body dysmorphia growing up. Both Jay and Olivia agree that the pressures young people - especially girls - face has only grown with current makeup trends. Ultimately, Olivia reminds us that we are less important in other people's minds than we think, so why not accept yourself as you are?
