This day last week I wrote a very difficult and painfully honest post about my battle with body image and self acceptance.
I feared at the time that I would receive a backlash and that people would read it and think I was self absorbed, shallow and vain.
Nevertheless, I posted it because it felt important on a personal level to expose my demons. I am still not sure why it felt important, but it did.
I wanted today to post a quick but very sincere thank you to all the people who read it and wrote such kind and supportive comments. I was blown away by the compassion and empathy I was shown.
In addition, I was somehow comforted, (whilst also very much saddened), to discover so many of my readers had similar issues to mine. If nothing else, I hope my sharing my story helped some other people feel less isolated and less ‘freakish’ about the demons they carry and battle with.
Thank you all for being the wonderful, kind and generous people you are!
Hugs all round!
