Body Shame + Your Husband
You know that dreaded feeling you get at the thought of having to undress in front of your husband.
You don’t want him to see you naked. So you have him turn around while you undress, and hurry into the shower… alone… and pull the shower curtain back tight so there’s no chance to peak through, and see you!
Or what about when it’s time for a little hanky-panky….”Oh god, help me! I don’t want him to see me with the lights on!”
Nothing kills the romantic mood faster than a woman’s negative thoughts about herself.
There’s no way you can move into ecstasy when you’re thinking about…
“does he feel my fat bouncing around? Who am I fooling? There’s no way he’s attracted to me + enjoying this.”
Ready For A Loving Bitch-Slap?
What are you doing love!!!?
When your husband whispers in your ear in the morning that, “you’re so beautiful”, or tells you that, “you looked so sexy tonight” and you discount what he says as truth…. What are you really telling him?
You’re discounting him.
You’re de-masculating him.
He loves you as you are, but you’re not receiving his love.
In essence, you’re rejecting his love for you as you are.
That’s messed up!
