“Life is too short to fill it with hatred towards yourself. Your body is your own vehicle; one in which you will only get for so long. Instead of focusing on the flaws of this vehicle, use it with out shame. There is only so much time in which we will have it for, so fill it with feelings of gratitude and unconditional love towards your body. There is just not enough time on this earth for self degradation.”
