No Excuses

‘Today, I like my body. I went and bought a new bra today, and admired my body in the dressing-room mirror. It’s the same fleshy, pale, 36DD, 180 lb, five foot two body I had last week, when I cried for hours at home instead of going to a play party because I couldn’t love it, admire it, or imagine that anyone else could. That night, I didn’t even feel like I could live in it.’
