Dear body, I’m sorry that I didn’t pay attention when I should have been. I used you and abused you treated you like a garbage disposal at times in others used you in ways that just made me hate you more. I shoveled you full of junk that could hurt you and destroy you. I knew that what I was doing wasn’t good but didn’t stop. I took out whatever I was going through out on you and I’m sorry. I would hide and cover and at times make fat jokes about you because that was my way of dealing with what I did. Now I know that I don’t have to hide and that it’s ok to love me for me just the way I am. I am beautiful just the way I am. If I want to change myself that is ok as well but, I don’t have to if I don’t want to. If I choose not to my body is beautiful as it is. I don’t need the confirmation from anyone else to feel that way. I am so sorry that I wasted so much time hating you and not accepting my body as it is. No more time wasted today starts a new me and a new love of who I am. I am Beautiful!
