When I see myself in the mirror sometimes I cringe.. I think about all the imperfections I would like to see gone. My acne, stretch marks, stomach rolls, and so much more.
Sometimes I forget that this acne is from hormones that I cannot control. These stretch marks appeared after recovering from eating disorders and growing my beautiful children. These rolls are something that every woman deals with.
There should be no shame in how my body looks. All of those imperfections make up who I am. They show that I’m unique and beautiful in my own way.
My hope is that one day more people will realize that these “imperfections” are normal. Not only are they normal, but they are beautiful. I pray that more woman and men will feel more comfortable in their own skin. That we can all come to accept that no one is perfect. That’s the way it should be.
