Shaker natesmom:
I've never enjoyed being in my body. I have NEVER enjoyed BEING in MY body...the only one I'm going to ever have. I'm 44 and my entire life has been devoted to trying to *fix* my body so I'd be comfortable with it.

[Shaker itsdanilove's] statement [about enjoying being in her body] has brought me to tears...and it has made me realize that I've been on the wrong damn journey all along. I've tried to change my body, when I've needed to change my mind.
