My body, my body
Growing up with shame hurts the soul, body and spirit. Hate replaces love. Doubt replaces confidence. Worthlessness replaces esteem. Eventually the synergy between the body, soul, and spirit stops. We become numb. Numb to the good, the bad, and the ugly. So numb that we stop living. So numb that we need things more than people. So numb that we become unmanageable & out of control. Then the dawn breaks. We emerge out of the darkness.
