Ulli struts in with her original thighs
I have never been fat, but the propaganda goes so much deeper than that. My bodily struggles are slightly different than yours, but they exist nonetheless. I could have written this about myself, just like I'm sure every woman could. This essay is beautiful, just like you.
a beautiful read!
A truly beautiful essay that speaks so much of all of our thoughts - and the gift of a pure love is refreshing - I’m a generation older but my mother feared if I had blemished skin I would not get asked to prom! And I had to be Twiggy thin and as I was older - to be worthy in my parents eyes - I also had to be married - you are finally finding that freedom and I hope we all follow your lead - thank you for sharing
I hear you. Especially the parts about taking comments as cutting comparisons. There is true beauty in the way you see and cut through to the marrow of truth with such ease.
