Our body is such a gift...

The body is such an incredible thing. I was thinking a lot about this last night, infact I thjnk I probably only slept for an hour total last night.

Just think about it...
All the systems and components that make up your body. All the microscopic parts that work simultaneously to keep your body functioning. Then I think about all the stressors I have put on my body over the years. If my body has miraculously survived all the hell I have put it through, then clearly my body is a wonder of god. So obviously my body is strong. If it was not, it would of given up a long ago. Clearly it is not done fighting. It has not given up yet and will continue to fight. So why would I give up if my body has not. God has created these amazing bodies for us, so why do we abuse them.

Why don't I take care of this strong body. This body that let's me walk, cox, take care of people- why don't I take care of it. What did my body ever do wrong to me to deserve this pain that I'm giving it.

It boggles my mind.

You are exactly right. Punishing your body is punishing the wrong thing. You\'re not angry, sad, disappointed at your body. You feel those things for people who have wronged you and you should have it out with them. Their feelings might get hurt but they can handle it.
