This is one of those false logic situations, where we think if I do x, y will happen. It's rooted in all or nothing thinking. It can be really difficult to realise that no matter what you do to try and control yourself, your behaviour, your environment that your actions can't absolutely guarantee the response you want in others. If it's not about your body, it will be about something else. #bodyimage #psychology #writing All Or Nothing, Irony, Body Image, I Tried, Logic, False, Behavior, Psychology, No Response
No more body cruelty...

Nothing about your body is meant to stay the same. You're not meant to keep the same body you had when it was at a socially defined 'peak' (knowing that some bodies never experience that). It's not meant to be like a photograph, or an ornament. It's not meant to simply be looked at, by you or other people - reduced to an object. It is the body which you have, that gives you life in this world and enables you to interact with existence. #change #bodyimage Positive Memes, Body Positive Quotes, Positive Body Image, Body Positivity, Body Shaming Quotes, Body Quotes, Pregnancy Body, Pregnancy Quotes, Shame Quotes

By going straight to the emotion itself, attending to it, nurturing it, compassionately listening to it - all of the sensations; through the discomfort and waves - we are actually giving ourselves what we think we'll only find if we look the part - acceptance, love and care. Many of us really don't know how to be with uncomfortable emotions, and so it makes sense that many of us turn to diet culture or the beauty industry for temporary fixes, it provides a sense of control.

Our bodies are so resilient. Sometimes I really feel into and sense the magnitude of how wild it is that our bodies are constantly working for us - even in moments when we are having the worst time in them. Every single cell doing the best it can in any moment to give us life. I often think about birth and death. The entry and the exit point and all of the processes the body goes through along the way, that we are witness to, not only in our own bodies, the bodies of those around us too.

Many of us have identified the voice of the inner critic as the truth because it's the loudest, hurts the most and is most consistent. It may have also been a very familiar voice for years, even though it's painful, so it seems very very relevant. These aspects don't necessarily indicate truth of the content it speaks, it just makes it loud, bold, aggressive, dominant etc. No matter how loudly or dominantly someone speaks "facts" doesn't make it true. #bodyimage #innercritic Inner Critic, Consistency, Aggressive, Dominant, Identify, Loud
