How often as a society do we only pay attention to the surface? What someone looks like? The title of an article, maybe the first few lines? The beginning of someone’s story until our attention turns to our phone? Who someone is on social media instead of taking the time to find out who they really are? What their occupation or political affiliation is? Where is our patience to go deeper? With depth there is real connection, vulnerability, and truth. We are not here for surface level, we are here for depth.
I am not my body. I love my body, that’s why I take care of it, I honor the vessel that holds this beautiful soul, but we are all so much more than that. Take the time to really SEE people, as we all really want to be seen.
We denounce an entire human with a mere swipe or passing glance, without knowing them at all.
You know what the most fucked up part is? That there is a part of me that bought that like a cheap product on amazon. There are times where it seems like my worth is directly correlated to my muscle definition or a number on a scale. It takes work to undo the unhealthy patterns of thought that society has sold to us but if we want to reach depth in our life and real connection we have to see beyond skin deep, we have to love what is underneath, because a beauty like that is timeless and can be felt when it enters the room.
