Friday is for Forgiveness

Dear Brehlie,

I forgive you.

I forgive you for all of the hurtful things up you have done to me....all the starvation, all the countless hours of over exercising, all the pinching, pulling and cursing at me.

I forgive you for wishing that I was different and for robbing me of my natural functions.

I forgive you for allowing me to waste away...and I forgive you for enjoying it.

I forgive you for putting substances in me that did not do me any benefit - drugs, processed foods, alcohol, laxatives and animal products.

I forgive you for altering my proportions because you just couldn't accept my natural shape.

I forgive you for holding me up to ridiculous standards and telling me that I was not enough.

I forgive you for hiding me away out of shame.

I forgive you for not always taking the best care of me...for letting the cuticles of my nails get too long, the ends of my hairs split and the skin on my face and feet go unwashed.

I forgive you for exposing me to chemicals and for letting the wrong people touch me.

Brehlie,

I love you and I forgive you.

I will continue to serve as a vessel for you to carry out your extraordinary life.

I will not let you down.

Feed me an abundance of whole plant foods, nourish me and listen to me.

Tell me I am beautiful every day, and really mean it.

We are in this together...no matter what the scale reads.

Love me unconditionally and I will continue to protect you and serve you well.

I love you and I forgive you.

Love,

Your Beautiful Body
