Media personality Adelle Onyango has revealed that for the longest time she hated her body saying that, this was largely contributed by the fact that it reminded her of her rape ordeal in the past. Admitting that despite her being a swimmer all her life, she has never liked wearing swimsuits but she is now proud that she is totally in love with her body.
“I am so proud of the INTENTIONAL work I’ve done to get to a point of loving my body. For many years I hated it. I don’t know I think at the time parts of it reminded me of getting raped… the scars. Then came eczema with its own scars as if to mock me. Getting into a swimsuit was just… a no-no! Which sucked because I’ve been a swimmer all my life and I loved it!” the Legally Clueless host said.
“So I hid it- tights, long sleeves, don’t swim, the works! I hardly looked at it. Didn’t give it the healthy things it needed. For years… yikes! But right now I respect and honor the divinity in this body. It’s carried me through battlefields and continues to do so to date. Hre’s to intentional healing. It’s hard. It takes time. I’m not all the way there. But it really is the gateway to freedom! #IntentionalHealing #SexualTrauma #LovingYourBody #Therapy #Healing.”
