My New Wings (Anonymous)

January 21, 2008

It has taken me over two years to become somewhat comfortable with my body again. I have blamed my stretch marks and saggy boobs for my (now ex) husband cheating on me with more than one person. Even though I have always said that my beautiful daughter is worth the scars, I have recently begun to actually embrace them. It’s a daily battle, and this website is someplace I can go when it all gets to me. Instead of obsessing over creams and wondering if I’ll ever look the way I did, I now realize that it would probably be pointless anyway since I spend my Friday nights watching Elmo.

    Your beautiful! I know what a struggle it is to accept your body after baby. I have lots of dark belly stretch marks but Im learning to love them. I want my daughter to know there noraml and as one man said to me “marks of a beautiful and sexually mature women”. Its not your fault of your breast faults or your stretch marks fault your ex cheated. Its your ex’s fault for failing to be a man. He failed you and your family, not the other way around.
    Take care. :)

    I love your beautiful nursing shot! I wish I had one of nursing my daughter as a newborn. I guess we didn’t think of that! :)

    Your ex is a jerk who just couldn’t control himself. That is never your fault. I always spend my weekends with my daughter, too. And Elmo is probably the most entertaining of the shows she watches! :)

    You are both so beautiful! I love all 3 photos, very artistic.

    I’m sorry about your ex, he is missing out big time on the best part of life.

    I think the last pic is my fave. Love your hair! And baby’s sweet, soft back. So cute!!

    I love your pictures. Your little baby is precious. You look great in the pics, especially considering that you obviously just gave birth in the last 2 photos! I’m sorry your ex-husband wasn’t man enough to step up to his responsibilities as a husband and father. He is the one who will have regrets, because the first precious years of a childs life go by too quickly and you can’t go back once they’re over. Please be good to yourself. It wasn’t your fault, and if you were a supermodel, men like that will still see something “better”.

    I have a tattoo almost just like that on my lower back, but smaller. :)
