"why do you live in your body like you will be given another? as if it were temporary. you starve it, you let anyone touch it, you berate it. tell it that should be completely different. you tug at your soft flesh, wish it thinner, wish it gone. you fall in love with those who praise the way it sighs under their hands, but who praises the way it holds up your weight, even when you are falling apart?"

I discovered this piece of writing quite serendipitously and was immediately intrigued/ awed by the writer.
Amazing , amazing stuff.
Please check out her other pieces. Makes me yearn to rediscover the writer in me.
Maybe someday I will find her again, in the meantime I will seek inspiration from others.
