self acceptance

Radical Self Acceptance - by Molly Pettis Reid

I haven’t always been so friendly with my body.  As a matter of fact I can hardly remember a time when I wasn’t in a battle with it.  At a very young age I learned that my body wasn’t acceptable.  I dieted, over exercised, starved and binged on unhealthy food.  I tried to change my body and found that it rebelled riotously.  It grew bigger, got sick and I grew angrier.
