Where do you go when your body doesn’t feel like home?
When you hate it so much you threaten to mutilate it
Because no matter what you do
You feel stuck at a plateau
When will you tire of being a failed reflection of everyone else’s desires?
And stop forcing yourself into never-ending cycles
Of chasing this fad and that fad diet
Cremate the projections of perfection you failed miserably, for years, to manifest
Do you even know that you should? That you
That you abandon the guilt and shame built up over time
Over your blemishes
Over your scars
Your stretch or pockmarks
Your too-dark or too-pale skin
Your too-thick or not full enough lips
When will you burn it all down—your unhealthy obsessions and needless worries over perfection?
Free yourself and rebuild your self-confidence from within
Honor your physical dwelling
Relinquish the need for outward validation
Be healthy, yes, but be careful not to let #bodygoals make you .
