I'm worried that in a new relationship I would "find" something else that upsets me (e.g. body hair, wrinkles, etc.)
Even the airbrushed, 'perfect' models we see on TV, Internet etc have 'flaws' that we are not privy to. NO-ONE's body is completely without flaws, and in the end we all end up looking old and wrinkled, if we get to live that long. I know, it's gross. The body just isn't what it's cracked up to be. We were sold a lie (by mainstream culture, media etc.)
Knowing this body is like a clay jar,
securing this mind like a fort,
attack Mara with the spear of discernment,
then guard what's won without settling there,
without laying claim.
