Dear Carol: Am I good enough for my crush?
I have a huge crush on this boy from camp, and I think he likes me, too. The problem is, I think I’m fat. I don’t see why he’s into me, and not all the pretty, skinny girls.
Dear Camp Crush,
Please enjoy this mutual crush instead of questioning it. He likes you because you’re fun, smart, a good listening…all the things that make you who you are, OK? As for your weight, go easy on yourself! We all come in different shapes and sizes, and worrying about how you measure up compared to the other girls isn’t good for you. As long as you’re healthy, you should be happy and confident in your beautiful body.
