The pain I feel when I think about my daughter growing up and hating herself the way I did for most of my life, is my reason for LOVE body. And how sad I feel deep inside when I think of anyone who hates themselves that much. As women we have learnt to hate our bodies, be disgusted by them if they are not perfect and live every moment of our existence wishing we were skinnier. We obsess about the food we eat, we punish ourselves in the gym and we constantly tell ourselves we are a failure, we are hopeless and we are not worthy of feeling good. It’s time to forgive our bodies and ourselves. Together we can support one another as we learn to listen to the loving voice inside us as it guides us to a place of LOVE, peace and joy in our minds and bodies for a life free of self-hatred and disgust. I no longer allow such hatred and disgust to reside in my mind and body. I feel free.
