Striving to be acceptable monopolizes the time spent getting to a place one never really wants to get to. Content enough to live in a place of beautiful self disgust, there is little time left for anything or anyone else. Daily thoughts are spent on caloric summations, body assessment, and inadequacy.
“A cultural fixation on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty but an obsession about female obedience.” ― Naomi Wolf
