If our car started having issues, we’d take it to the mechanic straight away. If one of our appliances were playing up, we’d take it to someone to get it fixed. Heaven forbid if something happened to our phones, we’d be running around like crazy to get that shit sorted out.
So why don’t we do this for our bodies?
Our bodies are the most important thing we own. It’s our vehicle, our vessel, our temple. While we’re young, our parents look after it for us, but once we get the keys, we have to step up and listen to it.
If you have something that’s bothering you, seek help. If you find out your family medical history has some crazy shit in it, make sure you keep yourself checked for it as well. Just please, listen to what your body is telling you, and get help when you need it.
As Baz Luhrmann says:
Enjoy your body, use it every way you can
Don’t be afraid of it or what other people think of it
It’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own
