Why you dislike your postpartum body and how to embrace it.

If you have had a baby and you do not like your postpartum body then you are not alone. Most women struggle to accept their postpartum body.  But have you ever wondered "why."" "Why do we dislike our postpartum body?" Why is it so hard to accept the difference?" "Why do so many women opt to change it through surgery or other ways that are advertised ?" Below are some of the top reasons why you hate your postpartum body. 5.  Your clothes don't fit the same After you have a baby, oftentimes your clothes  will not fit. Whether you are 6 weeks postpartum or 10 years, your clothing may never fit exactly the same, regardless of how much weight you lose. As a result some women may start to feel like a stranger in their own body. They may not know what clothes will flatter them anymore or how to find new clothes that look great on them. This can lead women to dislike their body. 4. You feel judged by others It is no secret that we live in an era wher


At some point in our lives we will leave this earth. None of us are quite sure how and it scares most of us to think of the unknown.  However, if you are looking for someone who has great endurance and strength, it is generally those who are sick, ill and going though immense pain, either now or throughout their life. 

"Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth (Matthew 5:5),"

During a person’s darkest hour they generally forget about all of the material things of the world. Since most of us are used to  walking, running and jumping, a person who is very sick has come to the realization to accept things how they are and many times are gracious for whatever they are given. Often times, the sick and dying are neglected, not because people are horrible, but  because people do not like to face the possibility of  their own mortality.

Strength is not shown when a person is never able to ask for help. Strength is not even shown when we pretend things in life are great. Strength is the complete opposite. A strong person:

  • Is not afraid to shed a tear. " Jesus Wept" John 11:35).
  • Stops caring about the criticisms of other people and ask for help in spite of it.
  • Recognizes that life is short and they “seize the moment.”
  • Understands they have many people who are against them, but they are willing to let the world know their life struggles, just for the chance of saving one life.
  • Leaves their pride behind, without noticing it. "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before the fall (Proverbs 16:18)." 

Of course these rules do not apply to everyone and this is not about religion, politics, race or nationality. Suddenly being stripped of everything you thought was yours is a life changing experience.  True strength comes when you throw in the towel and say I cannot do this alone anymore, I need help.  

"That is why for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults and hardships in persecutions in difficulties. For when I am weak, than I am strong(2 Corinthians 12:10)."

I am sorry to both the sick AND the family members. 
 But, understand and there are people who care.
