this is terrifying to share...
this video by dove? I saw it circulating Facebook for quite awhile before I actually watched it. I kept switching my view from the computer screen to the video monitor. I cried as I listened to these women describe themselves and each other. I cried as they revealed the sketches. I cried as I watched my perfect baby girl sleeping peacefully in her crib.
self loathing, all due to hormones (nasty stuff we are made up of, ha ha) and I cringe just thinking of how cruel I was to myself. But my normal day to day thoughts are almost as ridiculous. Would you believe that I believe that I'm the ugly duckling out of all of my friends? I have such gorgeous friends, every single one! And I often wonder if people feel bad for me for being the odd duck in any group. Just saying (or typing) that out loud sounds ridiculous. I'm embarrassed to feel that way! I gripe about my skin, I pick at my body, I voice concern about all of my imperfections to my husband and that sweet man probably wants to smack me! He is quick to tell me how perfect I am in his eyes. If only I could see myself the way he sees me....
