I still hate my body sometimes.
I know, I know I post photos of it a lot and it seems like I should have my body love down pat at this point.
But the truth is, I’m not perfect.
My unlearning of what a body “should” look like to be beautiful and worthy of love is still a journey.
Even still, sometimes my first reaction to a photo of me is, “I need to lose weight.”
Or, “Delete that.”
I don’t know anyone who is 100% completely comfortable in their body and in their skin. And that’s okay.
I hope someday our sons and daughters don’t have so much undoing to unpack with their therapists on their relationship with their bodies as they are; but until then, we keep doing the work.
Even if you aren’t in a constant state of self love, the important thing is to k e e p t r y i n g.
More important than reaching this mystical land of pure self love and body acceptance is the choice to wake up every morning and try.
Even if I hate it sometimes, my body is still worthy of me finding a way to love it.
And so is yours. You are worthy, your body is worthy.
Together, every day, we’ll keep trying. - 22 minutes ago
