Since I believed that I was fundamentally ugly, all my energy went into studying art and cultivating my mind to the exclusion of relationships. If a man showed any interest in me I concluded that he was crazy or a pervert. It is a mystery that I managed to get married, and my husband insisted that it was my intellect that attracted him not my body. Self acceptance began the day when I held my new born son. He was so perfect to me that I had to consider that he could not come from someone so defective.

I still feel the pain of that body hatred. Today I am more accepting of myself, and I love my body and adore that fact that I see this chubby woman when I walk past a store window. Self acceptance came late, and I lost those years when I could have enjoyed being a femme fatale.
they wouldn't let me rep you again. but i think you are still a femme fatale beautiful woman.
