taking away the layers
so today I stood in front of the mirror and I just looked at myself. this is something I’ve not been able to do in a long time. you know what I saw? me. I saw myself again, for the first time in a long time. I have a wee bit more chub and muscle on me than I have had in the past, and I also have a wee bit less on me than I have in the past.
but fuck it. this is who I am now. this will probably be hugely different from how I am in years to come, as it is different from how it has been before. but it’s my fucking body and I will respect it. I will be comfortable knowing that I desire to take up the amount of space I require as a human.
