brave mr rogers“There is only one way to avoid criticism:
Do nothing
Say nothing
And be nothing.”
~ Aristotle

I thought that if I got thin and nothing was soft or poochy on my body that I would be free from judgment and criticism. I thought I would be loved fully. But no. Love and connection requires vulnerability, and vulnerability is brave.

“Love isn’t a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like struggle. To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now.” ~ Fred Rogers
