I'm Sorry, Body

Nude female portrait painted in watercolor

"I’m sorry, body.

For hating you despite the fact that you moved me across the world.
For nitpicking you for having an uneven skin tone, or too many moles, or too much fat, or too little fat where others said I should have it.
For making you smaller for other people’s comfort or pleasure.
For denying you pleasure, or pretending you’d been pleased for people who should’ve tried harder to make that happen.
For making you sick for love.
For making you sick for heartbreak.
For talking badly behind your back
For not being a good friend to you.
For punishing you.

Thank you, body, for loving me anyways.
For not giving up, slowing down, nor holding a grudge.
I wish I were brave enough to love you fully right now, but I promise to try harder every day to appreciate you for doing everything nobody else would ever do for me."


"Lo siento, cuerpo.

Por odiarte a pesar del hecho que me mueves a través del mundo.
Por ser quisquillosa contigo por tener tono desigual, o demasiados lunares, o mucha grasa, o muy poca donde otros han dicho que deberías tener.
Por desairarte por comodidad o placer de otros.
Por negarte placer, o pretender que estas placido por personas que han debido intentar con más fervor para hacerlo.
Por enfermarte por amor.
Por enfermarte por un corazón roto.
Por hablar mal de ti a tus espaldas.
Por no ser una buena amiga para ti.
Por castigarte.

Gracias cuerpo por amarme de todas maneras.
Por no darte por vencido, flaquear o resentirte.
Desearía ser suficientemente fuerte para amarte completamente en este instante, pero te prometo que intentaré cada día, enérgicamente, a apreciarte por hacer por mí lo que nadie más hace."
