Hi readers! I was interviewed by BlissChick about body image stuff... I answered questions like 'how do I feel about my body', 'do I weigh myself', 'how do I feel about shopping for clothes' and more...
I did my best to answer honestly because truthful sharing is helpful. I am learning through the process, and readers of the interview will find that either they relate with what I shared, or perhaps they will see a story different from theirs. Either way is good.
One thing I have learned in reading over the published interview is that my comparative sense of my own body (an example is big boobs versus my smaller ones) is not really seeing myself, it is more a technique of self-denial than anything else. To really see myself is a combination of feeling, sensing and observing myself and my thought processes in time and space, and as resin naturally is produced by certain trees, I too may find that my life process produces certain understandings about my life as lived in this world, during this time.
And I feel a strong connection with other women who are going through this experience of living during this time, too. It's a sort of cultural song on suffering, especially when it comes to the relationships with our bodies! We need to share together about these things. Thank you, BlissChick, for the opportunity to share.
With loving and caring regards,
