Forgiving the Body That Failed Me- What I don’t talk about is the deep sense of shame for my body’s failure to give birth to a living child. Or the anger of having been let down by the so-called natural function of a woman’s body. Or the guilt of having no cause or reason for why my body couldn’t carry them into life. My body failed me. My body failed my children. I failed as a mother and as a woman. This is the shame and guilt that I live with every day.
Yes, yes, YES! Our culture is so obsessed with dieting and exercise for weight loss. Neither of these were ever intended for our bodies, and there's a 60 billion dollar a year diet industry that depends on us failing at said diets and weight loss. We've bought into the lies. It's time to change our culture. My heart is crying for it!
