Standing in front of the mirror naked
My dear friend Shame had a lot to say.
In a world full of sticks and twigs I can’t help that I’m a brick.
I can’t help that my breast sag lower than others or that my butt has more stretch marks than others.
They all try to inflict their insecurities on me.
Judging me.
It takes a lot to accept my body; my brick.
Shame had a lot of nerve to point out my flaws. 
To show me who I once was. 
Pointing out the pocket in my back,
The fullness of my tummy,
The stripes that work their way up to my waist,
And thickness of my thighs.
My dear friend Shame has helped me to understand self hate,
Fake confidence
And fake self love. 
It takes a lot to be me.
My dear friend Shame has made sure of that.

That's all for now, until next time stay fabu-lous!

Peace, love and happy shopping
