I thought I wasn’t enough

I spent my teenage years obsessing that I wasn’t enough, always looking for the seal of approval from others. I wanted to be liked, accepted, fit in.

My Dear Body – an apology letter

For years I’ve had resistance to talking about my Body. I’ve done a lot of work on body image, self-love (I used to roll my eyes at that term) and today I am sharing something deeply personal. An apology letter I wrote to my Body.

Hi My Dear Body,

I am writing this long overdue letter to apologise to you, and I am sorry it took me so long to actually…
