I adore my daughter in every way, but let's highlight this today:
She is in size 6 diapers and 3t clothing. She is 7m old. You think she gives a fuck?..."well of course not, shes a baby", you say, "babies don't know anything." You say.
Or is it that babies actually know what is truly important? At the core of who we are, we are not ashamed of the shape of our bodies, we do not torture ourselves or carry such hatred. This behavior is learned. She exists. With such joy, she exists. What a noble concept in a society where existing while female creates an evironment where complete strangers feel free to comment on your body/ clothes/hair/lifestyle. I will exist and I will stand strong in this body, needing no permission. I am here if you think I'm fat, beautiful, perfect, trash, weird, etc.
The only weight one needs to lose is that of other people's opinions. The weight of an ill-intentioned comment. Let it fall at your feet as you walk past.
She shows me that existing is the ony thing I need to do to create a life full of love.
