Self love and hate

I’m putting this out into the world today because I have hated my body for most of my adult life. HATE in my opinion is one of the ugliest four letter words that exist….but that is how I see my body…with hate. My body that held my two amazing children, the body that has held my mind, heart and soul for nearly 40 years and hopefully many more… this body now does more amazing things than I ever thought possible like karate and running while managing the challenges of RA/RD and Osteo Arthritis. I’m working to stop hating my body and start loving it instead. I have been working SO hard physically and nutritionally because I want to love my body instead of hating it but what if I love my body all of the time and take the best care of the only one I’ve got with love instead of hate ….just a thought. Wishing you all a healthy happy Thursday.

  1. I’m sad to say I hate my body too for as long as I can remember and even more so since I was diagnosed with RA. Actually, it’s on the bad days when I hate it the most. I wish I didn’t… I try to dress up and put on clothes that make me feel good. Some days it works other days not as much… It’s hard to try to change the mind but I’m working on it too.

  2. Hi Cecelia! Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. I completely understand where you are coming from. It has taken me such a long time to realize that despite my limitations, my weight, my flexibilty and so many other things, that I am stronger than I ever thought I could be mentally emotionally and physically. It takes practice patience and faith- all of which I know you possess. Be patient loving and kind with yourself don’t give up I know you can do it!!!
