Body and looks issues

There can be a lot of pressure on both young men and women to look a certain way.  During puberty your body will go through lots of changes and this can affect how you feel about yourself. 


How you think and feel about the way you look can affect your confidence and how much you like yourself.  It’s normal to worry about the way you look and feel awkward sometimes, especially as your body changes and grows. 


But if these feelings continue or become more extreme, and if they start to affect you so badly that it’s all you can think about, then it’s important that you talk to someone and ask for help.
