“I wanted my daughter to think that her mother didn‘t notice the size of other women‘s bodies because I wanted my daughter not to notice the size of other women‘s bodies. I believed a mother must act like the woman she wanted her daughter to become.”
The way we view ourselves has to come from the inside, not from the reflection that we see in other people's eyes. But sometimes it seems to me that reflections are all we have. Without them, we could never see ourselves at all.
