Julia Bradbury has revealed that she no longer cares about rejection and believes she has a ‘duty’ to be positive about her appearance – just weeks after her lockdown fear of breast cancer.
The presenter said Hello! magazine that she’s taking stock of her life, just turned 50 – and she wants to be an example to other women as they age.
“I have a bit of an obligation to women to be proud and positive about the way I look now and wear it as a badge of honor, instead of thinking,” Oh God, my jaws sagged and my belly is a little wrinkly. I’m the age I am, “she said.
The Countryfile presenter said that “when it comes to aging, you look at yourself in the mirror and think,” Oh, okay, that will never be the same again. “

“But then I think,” I have three wonderful children, and perhaps this would have gone south if I had younger children. ‘
Turning 50 is “a good time” to be “thankful and think” OK, what do you want from the next 30 or 40 years of your life? 2 “she said.
“So I think, ‘Okay, what do I have left? What do I want to achieve and how do I want to do it?’ And then I try to check them off. ‘
She added, “I have reached the stage where I no longer care about rejection because you get so used to it in my company.

“There are things that don’t work, and then there are amazing things that do.”
Earlier this year, Bradbury tweeted a photo of herself with a mammogram during the lockdown, urging her followers to check out everything they were concerned about with a family doctor.
She later tweeted that she had been diagnosed with microcysts, adding “a very small chance of development to something.”
She told the magazine that she regretted leaving it a few weeks after finding the lump in her breast to take an action, but she only did when a friend said she had breast cancer surgery undergo.
“It shocked me. I thought, “You’re an idiot. Why haven’t you done anything about this?” “Bradbury said.
“It was one of those things that I thought, ‘It won’t be me, I’ll give it some time and let it go.’ It was very negligent that I did nothing.
“I felt utterly relief, of course, and a little foolish to have left it, and it made me very aware.”
