Today I realized I need to officially designate my body as a “no comment” zone.
People comment on my body ALL THE TIME and I usually just let it go… I’m pretty open when it comes to “body talk.” Most comments are along the lines of "you look good” or “better" and I can get (or fake) a little "this is a good thing” moment.
It seemed like being overly protective or guarded about body discussion would be more disordered – allowing me to escape further from reality and down the rabbit hole into funhouse mirror land.
But perhaps now is the time to make a firm boundary (I have no problems being outspoken thank goodness LOL) and not entertain ANY commentary because it just f*cks with my mind. I am a food addict … it is all poison to me.
I have settled on my catch phrase and from now on I will be saying the following:
“We’re not talking about my body so….
Then I will smile pretty and because I am me the person will probably laugh and the moment will pass.
I should probably keep this mentality in mind when I go bathing suit shopping but more on that later… or not.
