At this time of year my bathroom becomes a place of warmth and healing. For many years when stressed, or not happy with my body it was a place I avoided. Relaxation simply wasn’t possible. My mind would work overtime as my body stilled…
What if bleach had been left in the bath after cleaning?
Why was my stomach always puckered and protruding rather than flat or smooth no matter how thin I was?
Underneath all of these racing thoughts were the real questions of course.
Was I safe?
Was I lovable?
I have learned to look to myself for the answers to these questions.
I am as safe as anyone else is in an impermanent world. I will do my best to support myself.
I am as lovable as anyone else is. I will do my best to love myself wholeheartedly.
