Do you hate your body?
You shouldn’t, it does a lot for you.
A lot of people certainly do, yet there is something that many forget when they are steeped in their loathing.
It’s not your bodies fault it is the way it is.
Honestly, for the most part it does it’s best to keep going for you, despite the excessive amount of calories you force in to it via sub optimal food choices, calorically dense beverages, or even the sleep depriving activities you subject it too.
Regardless of what you do to it, it does it’s best.
So, let us say you have a few extra lbs, who’s to blame?
Is it your body because it’s out to get you and store as much excess body fat as possible so that you have a lower value in the overall dominance hierarchy, or is it because of ‘you’?
*’you’ being mental attitude, bad habits, lifestyle choices, essentially your consciousness, you mind as it were.
Our bodies are vessels, nothing more.
We are in control of them because nothing happens without some form of thought process first (for the most part, medical exceptions that affect mental/hormonal health/perceptions of reality or control excluded).
A lot of people find it easier to blame poor genetics, a bad hand that life dealt them, basically anything else other than themselves.
You’d be surprised how many people keep their ‘genetics’ int he fridge or wine rack.
It is in everyone to take control, all you need it to look inward and honestly think for yourself for a change.
“I think, therefore I am.”
Wow, this is getting quite deep 🤔
Don’t hate your body, appreciate it because what you see aesthetically is not a reflection of a ‘naughty/bad body’ it’s a reflection of YOUR mental state, of your mind, a reflection of what we might call ‘you’.
Your body is not to blame, you are, remember that, accept it and change it.
Change your attitude and you will change your life.
Give it some thought.
