“Your body is not some defective product that loses value because it has flaws.
Your body is not some broken toy that needs to be fixed or otherwise, abandoned. Bodies are not lifeless, sterile objects that are manufactured in factories for consumer satisfaction. They are not meant to be perfect. They are disproportionate, asymmetrical, uneven. They are meant to sag, wrinkle, dimple, scar. Some things work fine, others not so well. There is always something that can be fixed, tweaked, or improved upon. Your imperfect body is meant to be imperfect. It does not lose value for being what it is. You may not be in love with how it looks right now. But do not think for one second that your body should be perfect. We are all fighting to feel at home in our bodies. You don’t need to go anywhere, do anything, have anything to go home; you’re already here.”

Hurtful things changed because people have said ‘That hurts me. Stop.’
