Dear body,

I’m sorry.
I’m sorry for what I have done to you and what may be done to you.
I want to one day be proud of you, to one day feel beautiful and empowered.
I want your scars to be know as battle wounds that remind you of the beautiful outcome you fought for.
I want you to feel safe when being held in the arms of another.
I want people to look at you and make you feel important, not by sexualizing you but by acknowledging your strength and growth.
I wish for people not to want to look like you.
I want you to take care of the person inside of you rather than focusing so much on the outside because it’s always changing anyways.
I want you to no longer feel restricted, but know that it’s okay to cover up.
I wish it was easier to take care of you than to harm you.
One day it will be.
Body, I’m sorry.
Elizabeth Christian
