The Body and Self-Hatred - Teliah NaShonia

The Body and Self-Hatred

In this present reality where 91 percent of ladies don’t care for what they look like and where 89 percent of young ladies have attempted an eating regimen by age 17, the exact opposite thing we require is another motivation to feel terrible about our bodies. But then, there has been a large number of body-disgracing patterns barraging us via web-based networking media. Patterns that disclose suggest that our midriffs ought to be more slender than a sheet of paper and our knees littler than an iPhone.


But, your eye is the lamp of your body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light (Matthew 6:22). Here Jesus portrays the eye as a light which lights the whole body. Our eyes are the passageway to our souls and minds and, all things considered, they give an entryway to our exceptional souls. We don’t have to fall victims to what society believes we should look like. Think about it, all of these people that you idolize have the riches, advance nutritionist to help them keep up this model image. God only knows how they actually feel about themselves behind the curtains.


This is exactly way Jesus made sure to bring a strong emphasis on our EYES. Terrible eyes prompt awful observation, however in the event that our eyes are great, our entire soul will be enlightened. In the event that we are in a lit room, we see everything obviously. We can move around hindrances and find whatever we’re searching for. Be that as it may, strolling in murkiness brings about lurching, falling, and grabbing for some safe thing to hold tight to.


In this case, if we who look in the mirror regularly and despises what we see, this pattern is definitely hazardous. Also, another trigger for the enemy to pull you away from biblical thinking. Jesus reveals to us that Satan camouflages himself as a heavenly attendant of light. That is his extraordinary double-dealing—to influence individuals to think they’ve discovered the light when in certainty it’s the obscurity of false light (2 Corinthians 11:14).


The enemy wants us to believe that were unworthy in the event that we can’t wrap our arms around our own backs. The enemy is disclosing through the MEDIA that our abdomen is more critical than the measure of our brains, hearts, and even our beliefs in Jesus.


As a Christian, we must remember that we can not love the world or the things in it. If we choose to love the world, then the love we should have for Jesus will not reside in us. Our worldly desires of the flesh are temporary. But, whoever does the will of God will abide in him forever (1 John 2:15-17).


If you love God, you will love what he wills. It is empty talk to say I love God but hate your body. The outcome is a  low self-esteem. Body instability can transform into poor execution at school or work, social detachment. Thin shouldn’t be our definitive objective. Wellbeing( having a biblical way of thinking, physical and mental) ought to be. More slender isn’t generally better, as demonstrated by the alarming impacts of dietary issues.


Body, self-hate patterns is another way for the enemy to separate your thinking from Jesus.In the event that you hate yourself since you don’t “measure up” as indicated by common models, understand that in doing as such you are demonstrating scorn or outrage toward God who made you as you are and put you in your present conditions.


We are to show thanks and honor to Jesus who made us and placed us in our circumstances, no matter what. To continue in a state of self-hatred after we have received the grace God offers us does not honor God and demonstrates a failure to understand the nature and value of the salvation Jesus purchased for us with His blood (1 Peter 1:18-19).

  1. Never thought about it like this. I suppose it’s something to think about, however. With that said, I don’t think the body we have is always the one God intended for us to have. Like you say, people suffer from eating disorders, illnesses or conditions that cause us to lose or gain weight or even accidents that scar our bodies. Some are ashamed of their bodies because of how other people see them… because our eyes are open plus the fact, humans are cruel and insensitive individuals sometimes. Maybe if we were all “naked” or transparent with our flaws, the pain wouldn’t be so bad. The sad truth is we will always have someone telling us we’re not good enough or we shouldn’t wear this, you’re too big for that or you don’t have enough booty/breasts for this. When you hear it so much, eventually, it causes us shame… self-hatred. Some believe in order for anyone to have the body of a god is to workout and have muscles, otherwise to think yourself a king or queen is wrong. I see this behavior more often than I want to see it. Some bodybuilders [men and women] put others down because they are not as fit as them or they are overweight. On another note, I don’t agree God “put” us in our circumstances. I believe He allows certain things to happen but never does He put us in a bad situation or illness. We make bad decisions all on our own that affect our bodies and minds. It’s not Him… it’s us. 🙂

    1. of Course, Jesus is never to blame for our own self-hatred towards self. But, it is up to us to ensure that our way of thinking aligns with his principles and the way the Jesus see’s us.
