Tell me again, why can’t we talk about body stuff?
Your body is your home.
It’s your primary medium of self-expression — your voice, your hands gesturing, making things, touching someone, legs walking toward, stepping away, hips dancing, butt seated, with arms folded — are you angry, bored, worried, satisfied? You breathe…I hear you.
Your body is your receiver and interpreter of the world around you, and the people in it with you.
It’s integral to your life.
How can it be weird, embarrassing, inappropriate, to talk about your bodylife?
What happens inside your body is literally defining your experience of the outside world, and of yourself, and your possibilities.
Our bodies aren’t sealed containers.
They are living— We are living beings.
Nutrition, hydration, elimination of waste, sweating, breathing, menstruating — these things happen in our bodies and outside them.
We make choices about our behavior, buy supplies, clothing, fixtures — we are involved in the care and maintenance associated with these aspects of our body lives.
Why wouldn’t you talk about it?
Why wouldn’t you be interested in ways to improve the quality of your experience, or someone else’s?
Why would it be unusual or unacceptable to share your experience, to ask questions, to get advice? — like you would when it came to any other aspect of your life.
Why wouldn’t it be normal to be interested in the quality of your bodylife?
What exactly is more important than that?
What exists outside of that? For you.
