I am a mother of four. I am a grandmother of 6. I have wrinkles. I will probably never be as thin as society says I should be. I hate being overweight. I sometimes barely eat anything for days and lose a couple of pounds and then finally do eat and gain it back. There have been times in the past when I have eaten and then gone and got rid of it. Quite a few times....but not anymore. I will never again let a man make me feel like I need to do that again. I can take maybe 50 pictures of myself and not like any of them. The picture above is the only picture I have ever retouched, I removed a couple of wrinkles. Why? I don't even know. Do you know how difficult this is to write? It's extremely difficult. But I am doing it because putting my feelings out in the open and maybe having someone read it who can relate to these feelings is helpful.
On the inside, I am not the person that I talked about above. I am this eternal, free spirit who does not understand why any of the superficial things that I worry about even matter. Like I said before, life is about remembering who we truly are and letting go of the rest......
Peace and Love to y'all.
