    Well said. I can really relate. As a near 60 y/o I am really seeing I am fat and not beautiful/pretty. I feel old and fat. The world seems like a place for the young and beautiful. Well if I can’t be that, who am I? I do want to live happy and let the rest go. Another important journey in this messy path of life!! But really a hard one!!

    This is POWERFUL! Thank you. I was especially moved by the bit about fears of being here, in this present, on this planet. I’ve been living those fears for the last two decades and I am (finally) ready to feel the discomfort instead of numbing. Thank you. I am finally ready to be ugly and happy instead of being thin and half-dead. This is an adventure!

    Thank you Caroline! My sense of worth is 100% bound to beauty, and that’s just nuts. I’m hoping that the fuckiteer academy will help me undo some of this madness, bc logic alone hasn’t helped me to snap out of this shitty belief!
