Acceptance Achieved (Anonymous)

As a teen
I hated my body
Too thin, so ugly
No breasts, no hips, no butt
I longed for curves
I cried

As a first time mother
I hated my body
Still too thin
But now with stretch marks
I longed for smooth skin
I cried

As a second time mother
I hated my body
Mores stretch marks
And now a saggy tummy
I longed for my teen body
I cried

As a third time mother
I hated my body
I finally gained weight
But in all the wrong places
I longed to feel beautiful
I cried

Now, finally, as a woman
I decide to love my body
Accept motherhood’s curves and
Enjoy the shape given to me
By my three beautiful children
I smile

    I can’t believe you have had three children> You look good and how did you keep your breasts so beautiful. Butt looks good too – also looks like you have nice arms and great legs, lovely slender ankles. Lucky you – lots of women would be jealous. Be proud of your body!

    Definitely achieved! You have a sexy and womanly and beautiful (!!!) figure! Congratulations on your baby!
