7 Ways I Tell This Body It’s Not Trash

It is thought to be C.S. Lewis who said, “You are a soul, you have a body.”

Sexual violence invades the space that you inhabit – literally leaving you feeling like ruined refuse.

Here are a few of the ways that I tell my body it is not trash:

1. I wash it with nice soap.

2. I nourish it.

3. I listen to it.

4. When it is tired, I let it sleep.

5. When it is hungry, I feed it good fuel.

5. I give it a nice haircut.

6. I kept it tidy and fashonable.

7. I move it, stretch it, and strengthen it.

I tell it that even though many hands have harmed it, I will help care for it, protect it and provide for it. For I need it, and it needs me for this season, while the soul of me inhabits this dust of mine.
