I think it's tragic that loving your body unconditionally is a radical notion. I think it's tragic that our culture views fat bodies as failing bodies. I think it's tragic that our culture enforces the idea that there are "good" bodies, and "bad" bodies. Who wins if I hate myself? Who benefits from my shame? Who is profiting from my hurt? I refuse to let my insecurity be used as currency. Fuck your flat tummy teas, your appetite suppressant lollipops marketed to teens, fuck preying on young women's insecurity. Over it.

Did you know Shame Is an Ocean is also an audiobook that I play piano on?? It is really good but really sad and I don't recommend listening all at once unless you have 6 hours to cry and a soft puppy to be your friend. https://www.amazon.com/Shame-Ocean-Swim-Across-Lambert/dp/B07JD2X9CX
My book is finally released into the wild. I hope it provides something for you, acts as a service, or friend. It was real therapy to make and I am a happier, more well-adjusted person because of it. Grateful to @macmillanusa for helping me release this and for facilitating such a smooth launch. Hopefully I’ll see you in nyc, LA, or Nashville this week! ♥️you guys. Take care of yourselves when reading this, it covers a lot of trauma and is sometimes explicit.
