Reclaiming My Body

The relationship I’ve lived with my body has been tumultuous to say the least. I was overweight since age 7 as well as into my teens and 20s and like so many others before me, I gave into the pressure to be thin that nearly destroyed me. Being thin was the only currency of life that I was interested in acquiring and I spent many years being at war with my body in every which way.

As the sensitive empathic child I was, I started to feel unsafe expressing myself and being seen and I became more shut down from not knowing how to deal with that. I didn’t know how to not absorb stuff from other people and I didn’t know how to shelter and protect my pure and sensitive heart. So I got quiet. Really quiet.

I let go of my physical clutter first. For years I had been that person that kept everything because it had a memory attached to it or because someone gave it to me. Being a child who grew up with only one parent and feeling the lack of the other, I made sure as hell that no one would take away anything else from me and this showed up clearly in the relationship I had with my belongings. I remember how my mother would cringe every time she attempted to help me tidy up my room because it became a power struggle when I decided to keep every. little. thing.
