Hello – this is your body speaking.

I am your body. From the time you were small, the “authorities” taught you to stop listening to me.  Push yourself harder, you can do the pull-up or the push-up or climb the rope. It wasn’t happening – no way, no how.  You were told we weren’t working hard enough, we were lazy and maybe even stupid. I could produce music, which sounded like the breath of an angel, but I could not help you climb the rope or do a pull-up.  The embarrassment set us up for humiliation.  You were embarrassed by my lack of ability on the playground and held it against me.  Instead of celebrating the things I could do well you resented me for the things I couldn’t do.

Can we start again?  What if we celebrated the good in one another?  How could we find balance and expand our relationship?
