I want to be prettier and thinner than I am.

I want other people to like me.

I want to belong somewhere or to someone.

I want to be impressive and important.

I want to change the world and be famous for it.

I want to feel seen and approved of by god.

I want to constantly know I am okay exactly as I am.

I want to follow my heart on a path of my own making.

I want to stop resisting.

I want to accept all of it–the parts I am proud of, the parts I am most ashamed of, and the parts that just are.

I want to not have to accept.
