"My sweet little body,
I don’t like you so much. I don't often talk to you to congratulate and to thank you. Most of the time, when I look at you I insult or I criticize you. Sorry about that. Today I want and I think I need to tell you what I feel good about you because we’ve gone through a lot together and today, I can tell without lying that I’m still happy to have you.
We’ve grown up in a world where there is a standard. A so-called beautiful, perfect model. The good news is that you’re closed to this standard. Congrats. The bad news is that it didn’t prevent you from taking hard knocks. In a world where even the closest bodies to this artificial perfection are criticized, observed, judged, no one has a monopoly on complex. And you’ve been given, complexes. «You’re too thin, are you anorexic?» «Oh, you have no boobs, no one will ever wanna have sex with you. » « You’re so not sexy. You know that a real woman does have shapes, don’t you? You’re really as flat as a board. » « Stand up straight. » « Your skin is oily, isn’t it? » « Your hair is so flat. » « Oh, this is horrible, we can see your coasts, are you sure that you eat enough? » « You’re too tall, that’s not really feminine. » And when you did dare expressing your complexes, you were being complexed for complexing. « How dare you complaining? You’re an extra small size. » « Sorry but you have absolutely no legitimacy to talk about self-acceptance. It’s easy for you. » « Oh right, you do complex? Come on, you don’t have boobs, right, but this is just justice, you have everything else. »
Do you know when you are allowed to have an opinion about your body? As soon as you do have a body. And this, I can tell without being too afraid of offending anyone: everyone, in the world, does have a body. But I don’t really feel like loosing time anymore with having a negative opinion about you. Because, whether I love you or not, I’m gonna have to live with you until you die, so I’m gonna try to spend more time loving you. Enjoying any single feeling you’re giving me.
So thank you. Thanks for carrying my organs. Thanks for allowing me to move in the space. Thanks for these orgasms."
