Self Acceptance

One thing that’s gotta give is a lack of self-acceptance. From having suffered from anorexia and gained a quarter of my weight back in recovery and still hearing the voice of condemnation, though thankfully much less, I really believe it comes down to radical self-acceptance of the person God created me to be. But even more than that — more than just self-acceptance is love. Radical love. Even if I don’t look the way I want to look, I need to love myself the way God made me and love the curves I’ve gained during weight restoration that in part define my femininity. I need to love myself no matter what. No matter what I look like, no matter who I am.
