I… fuck. Yeah, basically. I once pointed this out to my mother and she just stared at me, in stunned silence for ages.

If a female student got drunk and had her car stolen the university would call the police. If she got drunk and had her computer stolen, they would call the police. If she got drunk and had her phone stolen, they would call the police. The fact that she was drunk would not even be factored in when assessing if a crime had been committed. But if she gets drunk and has her body invaded and her humanity stolen, school administrations are perplexed about what to do.

You can only treat your body as well as you feel about yourself inside. Before you attempt to lose weight you need to get your mind in the right frame of mind. Your body will soon follow. Most of us do this backwards. We tell ourselves that we will feel better about ourselves after we lose the weight. It doesn’t work that way.
The foundation of all self-care is self-love. The most courageous and powerful decision you can make is to decide to love yourself and be happy in the present moment. All that you are seeking will come from this.
