I understand camouflaged imperfections or highlighting certain attributes; but when you go to great lengths to completely cover your natural look for a reconstructed appearance which can be left on the bathroom vanity at the end of the night; then your magical behind should not be walking around talking about how you can’t find a man.
He can’t find you either; not beneath all the cement and lies.
One of the things I love (and truly fear) about intimacy is trusting enough to reveal who you are flaws and all.
Through the power of Social Media the world may see you through fantasy eyes but that distant admiration is nothing compared to having one person viewing you at your most exposed.
The uncomfortable journey towards being comfortable “naked” (physically, mentally, spiritually, financially, sexually etc…) is how you begin to know YOUR self. (did you think I was going to say each other? Nope.)
Self love is at the helm of loving others and remember he will never see you if you can’t see yourself first.
If you don’t feel steered in the right direction in your life then ask yourself “what exactly am I covering?”
