When it comes to body love, I like to think I have a lot of it. Me and my body have been through a lot – I have hated it, I have been angry with it, I have adored it, I have been sad about it – it’s been a rough old journey for body and me. Falling in love with my body wasn’t easy but it was so worth the effort and it all started with making a decision to be kinder to my body.
I recognised that I would tell my friends when they looked good; I would coo over their frame, the way their body moved and the shapes they made, how smooth their skin was, how clothes fit their bodies. Then I would go home, look at myself in the mirror and pick myself apart – why didn’t my clothes fit like hers? Why isn’t my skin smooth? Why do my thighs kiss at the top and hers part? The love I was giving out to other people, I was completely forgetting to give to myself.
So I made a decision – I decided to be kinder to my body. I decided that I was worthy of the love I gave out to others. My body is more than just the skin I am in, it is more than fat, more than silvery stretch marks and soft, dimpled thighs. My body is the love I give, it is the walk down the road to the park, it’s the hug I give to a friend in need – my body is my life, my love and my soul and everything in between.
