Scientists have a new, highly effective treatment for women suffering from depression. It is a patch. All you need do is remove the backing from the adhesive side and place the patch firmly over your mother's mouth. - Tina Fey on SNL Weekend Update skit
|It figures I am wearing a shirt which reads|
I am a dangerous person
I love my daughters more than pixie dust (the stars in my eyes, the breath in my body and the passion in my soul). Both my girls are overweight. I see they both love and accept their bodies even at their larger sizes in ways I do not understand because at my larger size I never accepted my body as beautiful - never. I still struggle with me today more than I like to think about it.
Knowing the pain of obesity and not wanting my girls to spend decades with that feeling, I keep after my darling daughters about their weight and in doing so, I am the one who causes feelings of pain and rejection because my comments equal not accepting them as they are today.
I am tied of meaning well and causing tears. How does a mother see her adult children physically suffering and NOT say anything that will cause them more anguish.
Does anyone have an answer for that, except for the Patch?
