For school, I’m reading a lot of literature about body image in both men and women, boys and girls. It got me thinking, so I wrote this.
She prepares her breakfast at ten in the morning. A little late, but she’d foregone the alarm today on purpose.
Self-care is allowing yourself the freedom to exist as is.
Months ago, she skipped breakfast most days. And lunch. She’d have lean protein and vegetables for dinner.
But today she is having a breakfast burrito. She had the same thing yesterday. She will likely have the same thing tomorrow.
She loves the way her hair now gleams in the sunlight. She loves the way her thighs now touch. She loves herself. Genuinely.
Self-care is living life on your own terms.
