I've Changed Who I See as an Inspiration

Nude female portrait painted in watercolor

"My relationship with my body has been rocky over the years. I have stretch marks and scars and blemishes all over. My stomach is far from flat and my hips are wide. The biggest issue I've had is the breadth of my shoulders. It made wedding dress shopping a complete nightmare. ⁠


Over the last 6 months I've come to love the skin I'm in. You only get one body in life, you may as well enjoy it. I've changed my goals and set myself more realistic expectations of myself. I've changed who I see as inspiration in life which has left me feeling empowered. Life is too short, eat the cake you want to!⁠"

ESPAÑOL:

"Al pasar de los años, mi relación con mi cuerpo ha sido un embrollo. Tengo estrías, cicatrices y manchas por todos lados. Mi estómago está lejos de ser plano, y mis caderas son anchas. El problema más grande que he tenido es el ancho de mis hombros. Ha vuelto la compra de mi vestido para matrimonio una pesadilla completa.⁠

Durante los últimos 6 meses, he llegado a amar la piel que habito. Solo vas a tener un cuerpo en la vida, así que al menos hay que disfrutarlo. He cambiado mis metas con expectativas más realistas acerca de mi misma. He cambiado a quien veo como inspiración en mi vida, lo que me hace sentir empoderada. La vida es muy corta, ¡come torta si es lo que quieres!⁠"
