Writing freely about your body without fear and judgment will allow you to come face to face with some of the insecurities you may have eluded all this time out of shame, guilt or any other reason. It will provide you with the opportunity to explore your fears and insecurities you may have about your body and ask questions: What is it I am feeling? Why do I feel the way I do? Where are they coming from? What can I do to have a greater appreciation of my body?
Some of you may discover that you have a healthy relationship with your body without being narcissistic and obsessive about looking like a star all the time. That is also a great finding…
When you accept and acknowledge your fears without judgement you’ll find it easier to let go of any insecurities you may have of your body and its appearance. It will eventually lead to you befriending your body with lovingkindness and self-care.
