loving the body: a theoretical triptych.

Go check out loving the body: a theoretical triptych by Andrea Zanin.

Tip of the hat to my friend J, who lives with chronic pain and mentioned the post to me.

Andrea talks about self-love and ways of thinking about our bodies. I have a lot of work to do on that front. Self-hatred is a really confusing, deeply seated kind of bitch. I try and counter my negative thoughts, but self-hatred coupled with depression make a positive tone difficult to find, cultivate and encourage. It's baby steps for me.

Andrea's piece comes from a space that clearly struggles with loving her body, but is obviously well versed in the language and promotion of self-love. It's a nice read. Check it out.
