Anxiety about One’s Physical Appearance

Jul 19, 2018

     (0 Rating)

There is a direct correlation between a negative perception of one’s body and inhibited sexual intimacy. Free sexual interaction, or even the intimacy of sharing a bedroom, cannot be enjoyed when a person is embarrassed about his or her body and trying to keep it covered at all times. The natural sexual responses of the body are also inhibited when a person is concentrating on his or her physical imperfections, rather than erotic and pleasurable thoughts. It is amazing but true that many people feel quite unlovable, just because of some aspect of their body, and they are convinced their partner has the same negative feelings toward their appearance. The one thing the partner can do is communicate his or her appreciation verbally for every part of the mate’s body, always praising, never tearing down.

The individual with this anxiety concerning his or her appearance should look on it as a spiritual problem. Of course, if any practical improvements can be made, they should be. But the person needs to meditate on two scriptural principles: (1) God has given me these attributes. “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well” (Ps. 139:14 NIV). Therefore, I need to take the best possible care of my body and develop a positive feeling toward what God has given me and the way He has made me. (2) The Lord planned that husband and wife are to be “naked and unashamed” before each other as part of the one-flesh relationship (see Gen. 2:24-25). Therefore hiding my body from my mate is not scriptural.
