The verdict is in.

The world agrees with HIM.

I am not pretty enough.

My weight is not low enough.

My stomach is not flat enough.

And what the F*&% is a BMI anyway?

Will I ever meet HIS expectations?

The world’s expectations?

Have the right look, the right voice, the right attitude.

What does it take to be loved by HIM? By the world?

Now convincing myself I am NOT good enough.

I draw an X in BRIGHT RED and start again.

This time I recreate me for ME, and not HIM. Not the World.

I am a new ME.
