"I never promised you a rose garden. I never promised you perfect justice . . .The only reality I offer is challenge, and being well is being free to accept it or not at whatever level you are capable. I never promise lies, and the rose-garden world of perfection is a lie"
Yes, I’ve gained a lot of weight recently, but the only way it will hurt me is if I let it. I can choose to cry over it (believe me, I have) or I can be relieved that I’m almost where I need to be. I have senior pictures this morning, and instead of worrying about how fat I must look, I can try to just be happy that I get to wear a pretty shirt.
It’s all about perspective.
