Is this a question you really want to ask a piece of metal?
When you step on the scale and it has gone down, you feel approval. When it has gone up, you feel less than good.
Isn't this a huge responsibility to give to a inanimate object?
Stripping off all our clothes. Going to the bathroom first. Rechecking three or four times. Making sure we haven't eaten.
All to have the scale give a lower number so we can feel approval from a piece of metal.
Isn't there a better source of approval?
Isn't there a better judge of your goodness?
Maybe it's too big of a job for a piece of metal.
Maybe it's your job.
And may I remind you…
YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH.
(Now you have a second opinion for those days when the number on the scale goes up.)
