Life In Hole Essay

588 words - 3 pages

Body Of MeDear Body of Me,I hate saying that, because more than anything I wish that you weren't my body. I wish you belonged to a criminal, or some horrible person who's done something terrible; somebody who understandably deserves such a horrible physical appearance such as you. Every few hours I look into a mirror, hoping that what I always see has changed, faltered in any way. And every few hours I cringe, shiver in disgust, or look away before I have a chance to react. How could you betray me like this? Every particle of you is fat, cholesterol and sugar and I can't stand it! Why can't you get my message? Why can't you be like all those other bodies, ...view middle of the document...

What I wouldn't give for just ONE moment where I could see myself equal to everyone else, and not gargantuan. I don't understand what you've done to me. First piling on pounds, then purging them up with no success, and now, no matter how much a diet, you grow larger? What am I supposed to do to make up for what I've done wrong? Just tell me and I'll fix it; I'm good at that.Everybody else says that I'm hurting you. They say your getting skeletal. The girls in class are whispering about how much smaller your thighs are than they used to be. I have two problems with that; one, that would mean that our thighs used to be even larger then they are now! And for another thing, why are people saying all these things? It obviously isn't true! I can look in the mirror and see that! We are enormous! Doesn't that make you uncomfortable? Why are people going to such extreme measures to make us gain weight when we are already so large? I'm so scared, so confused, so lost. And I know that it's almost entirely my fault, but you have some cause in it too, you must! So I guess, even though I'm not hurting you in my vision, it would be alright with me if I was, because you betrayed me, went behind my back, and ruined my life. And I need to fix you, to make you small, so I can have my life back. So please just stop fighting! Stop tainting whoever's vision you are !and show the truth. Please. I promise I'll never be bad again.Sincerely,Janaine
