I've had it up to here with you.
I'm tired of being told that I'm just not good enough because of the way that I look or because of what size my clothes are.
I don't like what you're telling us women what we should be wearing. I've never been a slave to you anyway, but I do pay attention.
My body is not the same as when I was twenty...and will never be again. I will not feel badly about that. I have five amazing children to show for my life and I like to think that they are infinitely more important than what you're telling me. I want to be healthy and attractive, but I will not torture myself or my family to meet your insane definition of what beautiful is.
What's more is that I refuse (do you read me? REFUSE) to allow my daughters' to follow what you dictate is right for them. They will not put themselves on the altar of popular opinion and fads, sacrificing their self-worth and God-given beauty for you.
And you know your little minion, the size-tag? Guess what? I. HATE. IT. but I refuse to let my days be ruined by it any longer. It's not the decide-r of my worth or the gauge of how I feel about myself.
Therefore, I will strive to be healthy and beautiful because that is what GOD wants for me, not you.
I will continue to dress modestly, yet fun without feeling like I have to be a size two to do that.
So, consider this relationship over. If you have a problem with that, I suggest you check out Psalm 139:14 which states:
"I will praise Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made..."
I think that sums it up quite nicely.

PS You know those ridiculous outfits you require supermodels to wear? They are stupid. Nobody wears them and everyone laughs at what you're putting those models in this season.
