Today’s sentiment isn’t mine but from @drwillcole. My friend @meghan.jenks shared it with me earlier today, and when it arrived in my inbox, it was as if I could feel the earth shake - it resonated so deeply in my soul.
It’s only natural to feel angry, frustrated, and exhausted with our bodies at times. At times, it can feel like our illnesses have taken away all of the qualities we love in ourselves. Our bodies can feel broken and spent. (I’m raising my hand high for that this week.)
Earlier this week, I told a friend that it’s okay to metaphorically stomp your feet or slam a door, if that will get you through a hard day. (It’s gotten me through them, too.)
But, ultimately, beneath that anger and fear, should be love. Love for a body that gets you through each day. Love for a body that lets you take in a deep breath of someone you love. Love for a body that can still feel the first day of summer’s hot sun. You can’t heal a body that you hate. #100thoughtsonhealing
