You don’t have a body, you ARE your body

2. Function over beauty

  • Take care of your body (yourself) Try different exercise and eating regimens and see what feels best. “Best” meaning what makes you feel energized, happy and powerful. Everyone is different, so you never know what you might discover.
  • Turn inward. If you look for approval elsewhere, it will look different every time. You’re the only one who has to live in and with your body.
  • Everything is relative. It’s not about becoming an athlete, it’s about appreciating your body for what it can do, whatever that is.
  • Girls, guys don’t care as much as you think. I’m sure you’ve heard it before, and you probably ignored it. But they don’t.
  • On that note, nobody will ever pay as much attention to your perceived flaws as you will. They’re all concerned about their own.
