Sarah Doughty/Heartstring Eulogies
This body deserves to be worshipped.
It’s been disrespected enough.
I have spent my whole life hating my body, shaming myself over and over again, as if it might change my circumstances for the better. As if my abuser would stop taking his fill. But, despite my treatment of it, and his, it has kept me alive. It’s time I start treating it with the respect it deserves.
