A great post on self-love

02 Apr

I’m nowhere near where she on self-acceptance, but I loved what she had to say.  It’s a shame that loving yourself the way your are is considered such a radical thing.


Dear Media,

Please don’t feel like a failure.  It’s not you, it’s me.

Despite all of your hard work over the years, I still can’t seem to kick the habit of loving my body.  I know I’m supposed to feel bad about myself because I’m kind of fat and out of shape, with the soft floppy tummy of a middle-aged woman who had a baby.  I know that during my pregnancy I wasn’t supposed to put the baby’s well being before the maintenance of my pre-pregnancy figure.  At least I should have had the decency to have a tummy tuck afterward, which I neglected to do (plus my homebirth midwife did not offer that service).

Read the rest here – Dear Media: don’t feel bad that I love my body.
