10 BETTER BODY AFFIRMATIONS FOR YOUNG WOMEN


1. Your body is in flux for the rest of your life. Think of your body as fluid instead of static — it’s always going to change. So get comfortable with those changes.

2. No one will love you or not love you because of your body. You are lovable because you’re you, not because your body looks a certain way.

3. The most intensely personal relationship you’ll ever have is with your body. It’s a lifelong relationship that’s well worth investing in and nurturing the same way you would with loved ones.

4. You don’t owe your body to anyone. Not sexually, not aesthetically. Your body is yours. Period.

5. What someone else says about your body says more about them than it does about you. Look past the actual snark to the person who’s saying it, because it’s only a reflection of what they think of themselves. That’s when you’ll see how little power their words have.

6. Your body is not a reflection of your character. It’s a physical home for the complex and wondrous and unique being that is you.

7. Take up as much space as you want. You don’t have to be small, or quiet, or docile, regardless of your physical size.

8. Everything you need to accept your body is already inside you. There’s no book, or diet, or workout routine or external affirmation that you need to feel good about your body right now.

9. Your body is a priority. It’s always trying to tell you things. Taking the time to listen to is of the utmost importance.

10. Wear whatever you want. Your body shape does not dictate your personal style, and fashion rules that say otherwise are wrong. Dress yourself in a way that makes you feel happy and confident and beautiful, because guess what? You are.

last night i had a real life dream about a joke that was made that if i’m lucky i’ll manage to marry queerqueerspawn because not only is he good-looking and sweet and very intelligent he’s also infinitely more responsible than i am and will likely be the only reason our childrendon’t end up taking entire blocks of cheese and some fig newton cookies to school for lunch because he will have had the foresight to create an “acceptable lunch checklist” which is broken into categories from which i should select one item each and put it in the kids’ lunch bags

I will create these hypothetical checklists but will I got shopping regularly enough to have adequate foods in all categories? Will I?

#our children saying goodbye to go to the bus but stopping as soon as they’re out of sight to swap bits and pieces of lunches until each one of them feels like they’ve gotten useful things

#getting to school and saying “dad forgot to go to the store again so dad packed me an entire container of gummi worms, who has broccoli they don’t want?”

#other parents saying “we’ve scheduled a playdate for the girls this weekend with the northup kids, better have them come to our house else the girls come home filled with hummus and gluten-free cookies again. damn sweet, but almost completely useless when it comes to this stuff, their fathers are.”

We’ll have movie nights with popcorn with no butter. We’ll have curries and stir-fries with no rice. We’ll have smores with all sorts of improvized toppings.

popcorn with no butter?

does someone have an allergy or are y’all both just full of nonsense?

oh, or is one of you vegan, that makes more sense. 

I’d offer to have zoe and I feed your bbs but I just congratulated myself on eating a vegetable two days in a row and I suspect the last time Zoe encountered a vegetable was distressingly long ago. 

we are both intensely finicky so there will be like 18 foods in our house, except for when I need to learn to cook vegetables so my kids don’t go to somebody else’s house for dinner and go “gosh I’ve never had broccoli before”

whereupon I would die of mortification.

oh god that means I have to eat broccoli to set a good example no.

what if you two took over “introducing Zoe and Alex’s children to more than the core three vegetables” (carrots, zuchinni, and peas)

we could introduce your kids to…. junk food? small dogs? POPCORN WITH BUTTER? something.  

I’m unclear about why none of you have yet reached the obvious conclusion (that I just assumed you all knew about already) that everyone has to move to Virginia when y’all are ready to have babies. Literally every problem any of you people have brought up becomes solved with “let Hillary backseat parent your kids”

The hardness
with which you still hate
your body

is a kiss for the fathers.

Rest in peace, Gabriel Garcia Marquez. One of my all-time heroes. Been reading Gabo and Fidel and Cien años de soledad for the past few weeks. What a goddamn good writer. We’re celebrating you tonight, Gabo.
