I don’t hate my body.

Someone wrote…

I don’t hate my body, it’s just not my thing. It’s like that dress you see in the window that’s gorgeous, but not your color.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I love this. I’m going to write it somewhere to remember. :)

    I wish I had your strength and self confidence.

    I know what you mean. It took me quite a while to understand what you’ve put so simply.


  4. Mak

    So true.

    I love this. This exactly describes people who aren’t happy with their gender, but aren’t willing to change it, at least for me.

    I love this, and it resonates a lot with how I feel.

    Thank you for saying what I’d been trying to say myself. :)

    I think if you’re forced to wear a dress that isn’t your colour,it’s possible that you will come to hate it.

    Or maybe you won’t. The point being, I mostly do, yet I still agree – it’s good, but it’s not right ;)

    This is an excellent way to describe something I’ve felt it had to deem tangible for a long time. It’s nearly impossible to describe that you don’t hate your body, it’s just not comfortable, to others.

    I agree with a lot of things said here: this explains something I feel in a very simple elegant way. Just because my body is wrong for me, doesn’t mean that it is not beautiful.

    That’s it exactly! I’ve told people from time to time I don’t think there’s anything wrong with my body. It’d just look better on somebody else.
