Distorted Perspectives

10 Jul

After reading this letter posted by a blogger friend, and wiping tears away from my face, I knew this would have to be my next Sweet Wednesday post. It is told from the perspective of the daughter who once saw her mother as beautiful and wise, but her perspective was tainted by her mother’s distorted image of herself. The impact we, as mothers, have on our daughters’ body image is profound … and it starts with a healthier approach to our reflections in the mirror.

When Your Mother Says She’s Fat

Here are some things I want all young girls to know …

Sarah Kay: If I should have a daughter 

You are a beautifully, uniquely, and wonderfully created by a God who loves you. You can do anything and you will accomplish great things. You can change your world. You are enough.

    Excellent! We all seem to struggle with our image, but when we let go and accept ourselves as we are, it gives us a new freedom and certainly affects others as well. Young parents need to read this as well as us older folks. We need to strive to be healthy, not for image, but for our own well being. At 74 I am going to just enjoy life as long as the good Lord keeps me here. Do it when you are younger too. It’s better for you and all those around you. You are the way God made you and He doesn’t make mistakes.
    Love, Grandma
