I hated this body. From when I was a child I hated this body. I didn’t like the “African pear” shape and the hips and bums that I knew brought the kind of attention I didn’t like. I hated being sexualised. Other women would hurt me when they pointed out how it was the bum and hips that attracted the men. That I had the “right assets”. I hated that people would say they wish they had smaller breasts like mine. I wanted bigger breasts. So much so that I contemplated a boob job (nothing wrong with that). And then there were those who laughed that I had small breasts. Until I learnt a come back that says “at least after 3 babies they don’t sag..I still have virgin boobs.” BUT even that was nasty. It was however my defense mechanism. The truth is after 3 babies, I can tell you it’s hard to love your body. Cellulite, stretch marks…the works but I realise now that what I hated was more the entitlement of opinions about my body from other people. Sometimes it doesn’t take having children. It is the unkindness that the world spits out so that we can maintain a standard that they themselves can’t. But I also have to own the responsibility of answering or taking on those opinions and plastering the negative words on my body. I still struggle with body insecurities. Ask anyone who has had to dress me🙈. Hide this, cover that🙈… Getting to ambrace your body is constant work. Today I just wanted to tell you, you’re not alone. Sometimes, it’s okay to feel like you’re not enough. As long as you don’t stay there too long. #UnbecomingToBecome #BecomingMe #MyJourneyBackToSelf
