I find way too many people that succumb to the pressures of media and compare themselves to others too often. No one ever seems to be comfortable in his or her own skin anymore. There’s always a need to be the best, feel wanted, and loved. It’s human nature. But when it’s a regular thing in society to feel the need to hurt oneself in order to become something that is deemed “normal” or even “beautiful,” what kind of society is that? People should not have to feel uncomfortable in his or her own skin. We should be able to feel lovely about ourselves and not look in the mirror just to judge what is looking back at us. I am one of those people who have succumbed to this. I am thankful for the people I have in my life to help me through that struggle. There are times where that darkness creeps back into me and feel the need to self destruct or go to the extreme in order to look a certain way in order to make myself feel adequate. Not beautiful, but just adequate. I have slowly learned that this lifestyle should not be something that occurs in a vast amount of our population. Everyone should know that there are hundreds of people in the same mind set as you, feeling like they aren’t good enough or don’t feel beautiful. No one needs to to have that darkness creep inside of them. It swallows you from the inside out. I know this from experience. But I’m slowly coming into my own with the help of the wonderful people in my life and working on myself as well. You can too.
The human body fascinates me. If I could take pictures of different nude bodies for the rest of my life I would be perfectly content
