Just read a short article over lunch. The writer is a recovered bulimic who suffered with negative body image since a child. She talks about making peace with her body and spending some good one-on-one time together, as she would in getting acquainted with someone.
In her final paragraph she says: “I was thinking nothing hurts a new friendship like mistrust – I will do my best to avoid talking behind my body’s back. No more put-downs about height, no more jokes about leftover baby belly. There will just be gentleness and appreciation for all we’ve been through together.”
