The body is broken, both how we feel in it and how we feel about it. We have allowed our bodies to become the business of others. We’ve assigned it a value, a comment, an opinion. Our thoughts about it hooked, twisted and bought. To fix 'The Glitch', we need to find the road back to our self. What if, body diversity is the human condition? There is no “what if”. It is. We are all made differently, like any species we were never meant to all be the same. We’ve created a planet where we’re growing dissatisfied people (by the million) because we’ve been forced to reject the notion of natural diversity. Forced to reject ourselves. The Body Hoax is one mother’s journey to change the world and her (not even spectacular) failure. But she learnt a lot… and she changed. Which she now wonders was maybe the point…
The First Line/Book Beginnings
Our great, great, great, great grandchildren:
‘Did you know, in the Bronze Age, they believed the world was flat?’
‘Just crazy! And in the Commercial Age, they believed that everyone could have a small, firm body!’
Sigh. How I wish we could recognise/respect/even cherish our differences.ReplyDelete
And a big sigh at blogger. Who has recently decided that some of my own comments on my own blog are spam and moved them to the spam folder.
Oh boy, what will they (Blogger) think of next? I'm not even going to speculate on it as I'm afraid I will jinx myself and make it come true!Delete
