Body Imagitis

There is a terrible disease among us. It primarily affects
women and, to a smaller degree, men. It is a killer of self-
esteem, self respect and joy. It's called "Body Imagitis" and it
strikes people from all walks of life.

Beautiful, heart-centered people stricken with this disease
begin to believe they are not lovable and cannot have a
relationship because their body is not the cultural ideal. The
victims prevent themselves from bonding with others, sometimes
refusing all romantic confections. They find themselves saying
terrible things about how they look and constantly trying to
change their appearance.

What is seldom understood about this disease is that it is not
in the victim's body, but in the victim's mind. At the root of
the disease is the belief that one is unlovable as a certain
size or shape.

Do you or does someone you know suffer from Body Imagitis? If
so, the cure is fairly simple. Simply challenge what and how you
think.

Think about these:
------------------

* Are you lovable because of your body or because of who you are
inside?

* Do you only bring your body to the relationship, and if not,
what do you bring?

* Are your communication skills and your ability to share and
love the result of your body or a result of who you are?

* If you believe potential partners will not be attracted to you
because of your body, have you never seen people with
imperfect bodies in happy relationships?

* Is your body capable of giving and receiving pleasure?

------------------

I'm not saying you don't need to exercise, eat well and take
care of yourself to be happy and healthy, and to be attractive
to a partner. I'm simply trying to show you that your size and
shape does not dictate whether or not you can find a mate to
love you. No matter what shape or size you are, you will find
people who will appreciate and love you.
