Dear body of mine

I am writing this letter to say to you how sorry I am. I am sorry that I never respected you, sorry that I was ashamed of you and never defended you when people talked badly about you. I’m sorry that when I looked at the mirror I would cry, wanting to be something better than what God made me. I am sorry that I would sometimes hurt you when I felt useless and unworthy.
I am sorry that I never gave you a chance to participate in sports and let your creativity be known. I am sorry that I never got to express myself and tell you how beautiful and smart you are.
But things are about to change from now on, because I promise to love and cherish you, I promise that every time I look at the mirror I will smile at you, praise you and promise to look after you daily no matter what.



Tell us: How does this letter make you feel about your body?
