Radical self-acceptance

Sacha Coburn talking about body image and radical self acceptance



Sacha Coburn, who survived breast cancer and is an advocate for women’s empowerment, shared with us the importance of radical self-acceptance. She believes that accepting yourself as you are is crucial for your overall wellbeing. When asked about how she came to this realization, Coburn credited her parents’ unconditional love as a child for setting the foundation for self-acceptance, however, she also shares that this is something that everyone can practice regardless of their upbringing, you get to choose how you view yourself!  

Sacha talks about the change in perspective and mindset having Cancer brought upon the appearance, saying that how someone looks is the least interesting thing about them! It is instead about how they treat you, their values, their experiences and so much more! 

Sacha acknowledges the societal pressures that women face to conform to certain beauty standards, including makeup, and how exhausting it can be. She passionately encourages us to understand our value beyond appearance and emphasizes the importance of self-acceptance for overall wellbeing!
