Loving Your Body

“All the problems survivors experience with their bodies—splitting, numbing, addictions, and self-mutilations, to name a few—began as attempts to survive. You cut off from your body for good reasons, but now you need to heal that separation. You need to move from estrangement from your body to integration, to move from self-hate and rejection of your body to self-love and acceptance.”

~ The Courage to Heal by Ellen Bass & Laura Davis

We have the right to walk down the street without being met with glares, stares, verbal harassment or physical assault.:
