"My body is now a source of pride and strength, rather than something I feel like I have to tame. I don't mind taking up space anymore.
I can't believe you can be so happy and feel so awful at the same time.
Marvel at your life and all you've been through. Those fires shaped you into who you are, and you can be proud of how far you've come rather than ashamed of where you've been or where you think you should be. You never know what other people are going through so don't compare yourself to others. Also, be gentle with yourself. You're a work in progress--you're not supposed to have it all figured out yet.
I'm a birth doula and spend so much of my own time celebrating and honoring mothers and their bodies and babies. I wanted to honor mine, too."
