A long time ago, I remember one of my favorite food and body peace activists, Geneen Roth, saying:
“What would life be like if you stopped trying to fix yourself?”
Those words really made me stop and think.
I have spent a large chunk of my life trying to “fix” myself.
I was trying to “fix” my weight (I was too fat), my health (I was too sick), my looks (I wasn’t pretty enough), my personality (I wasn’t outgoing, or popular, or blah, blah blah, enough).
Essentially, I was trying to “fix” my whole being.
Why do I need fixing?
And why do YOU need fixing?
We are humans. We have a soul and a heart.
We are not a car or a house or a computer that breaks.
