Andrea Wachter, author of my all time favorite recovery book wrote a great article on Beating the Body Image Blues. In it she states: People in our culture are hypnotized and possessed. We have had a spell cast upon us — from our first fairy tale to the current magazine on the checkout aisle. It says this: If you are thin and pretty, you will feel happy and special.
Your body is nothing more than a vessel to hold what really matters, the amazing, beautiful you. If what is inside is mean, ugly and detestable, what’s outside is useless. Its contents are damaged. Of course you need to treat that vessel with respect because it holds your most precious cargo– the real you. That doesn’t mean abusing or obsessing, but loving and caring for.
Your body deserves love and respect. Treat it the way you would treat the love of your life, your most precious possession.
Give the article a read. She has some amazing tips on how to love your body.
