I have always been comfortable with my sexuality and the skin I am in. So going to a clothing optional beach was really no big deal. I’m sure there are many immature people out there who would giggle and poke fun at the things they would see, or feel embarrassed and uncomfortable. I didn’t feel that way at all. What I saw were a bunch of people, young, old, big and small simply enjoying themselves at the beach. I had a lot of respect and appreciation for them and loved the fact that there was no gawking and judgment being passed. For someone to shed their clothing in front of a bunch strangers and be totally okay with it, speaks volumes about their confidence and self esteem.
I decided very early on in my youth that I wouldn’t let people define me based on my looks. I recognized that everyone will always have an opinion of you and that you just can’t, nor should you need to make everyone happy. So what if so-and-so doesn’t think your pretty, or if some guy thinks you have a flat chest, or if some girl thinks you’re too scrawny. Really, at the end of the day who cares? I can tell you that it’s a real damn shame people have to be so mean and hurtful to others to make themselves feel better. There will always be bullies. The real question is, whether you will believe and accept them. Don’t ever become your own bully. Recognize that all these “so-called flaws” makes you uniquely individual.
As the quote goes:
“That’s the best revenge of all: happiness. Nothing drives people crazier than seeing someone have a good fucking life”. – Chuck Palahniuk
P.S- this picture was obviously not taken at the clothing optional beach. come on guys, that’d be pretty inappropriate!
