My relationship with my body has been very complicated from a young age. I have struggled with bulimia and all of the physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual symptoms that come with it. I have abused my body physically for many many years with binging, purging and over exercising. Along with the physical behaviors come the emotional behaviors. My body has never been part of me - I have never felt one with this things that carries me around. A thing that continues to defy me, disappoint me. A thing that I beat up on, speak horribly to, hate and loath. Through my recovery process I am learning what it is to be at peace with my body, to learn that what I see is not always the truth. That a body is more that a tight ass or a flat stomach. Learning my body has been and continues to be the hardest journey I have EVER been on. It is SO important to teach young women from a young age that they are perfect the way they are. That a body is more than the object we have been taught.
