The Weighting Game

ID-100120670

So sad to see this beautiful woman, looking at her weight/her worth and being aghast….

The game where
when weight you gain,
you only lose
your worth.

The game where
when weight you lose,
you gain,
maybe.
Self-love,
self-respect,
self-acceptance
can still be elusive,
in skinny jeans.

The game where
your worth is
inversely proportional
to the measurements
of your waist line.

The game where
shame
rules.
With each pound
you lose,
you become more
vulnerable,
Less protected,
Less insulated,
Unless your heart
is unweighted;
true to
loving
you.

The shame,
it keeps us
from claiming
our true
power.
For when
we are focused
on where we
are “not enough”
we balance
it out,
by adding to
our waist,
or further denying
our needs for love
and nourishment.

By not feeling
that we are enough,
we are unable to
receive and use
the gifts and
talents that
are ours.

By weighing
ourselves on an
inverted scale,
how can we ever
win?

Ponder for a
moment, how
much more
you could
accomplish, when
not focused on
self-hatred.
Constant
Self-flagellation
only represses,
rarely uplifts.

So reach up
high, my friend.
Accept your gifts!
And put down
your whip!

Namaste
