Welcome to my Blog
I don’t wear makeup, I don’t shave my hairy arms (pits legs etc yes lol-arms no thx), I rarely do my hair, I live in comfortable clothing, and even though this would qualify as non-dominant expressions of the current expectations of females... these expressions make me feel most beautiful--
When other women do their thing, & it makes them feel most beautiful & closer to their true self, that makes me really happy
Fitting ‘standards’ may feel constricting for some, but maybe they actually feel freeing & empowering & provide a genuine sense of belonging to others
There’s really no right or wrong way to express yourself—we just give meaning & connotations to words like “beauty” or “standard” that then creates the “goods” “shoulds” or “outliers”
Some days I am super inspired to “put myself together” & other days I’ll go as far as brushing my hair...MAYBE
I am passionate about so many different things & feel my best self is represented when I am free to express myself in MY most comfortable way
I wouldn’t want other women or any men to feel they couldn’t express themselves in a way they’re comfortable with just because of judgment or standards or perceptions of these factors
It is so freeing for humans when we can experience a deep sense of belonging to & for ourselves & see the impact of this acceptance on our ability to hold space for others
I admire others who do their own thing & those who support others in this
You can be a lot of different things at the same time
You can also be one thing at different times even when it may not “make sense”
I ramble in this because it seems there’s never a right way to encourage others to just be who they want to be without others then feeling or assuming they are not enough?
Maybe I’m alone In my experiences with that but I find the world needs more self acceptance & appreciation along with positive encouragement to embrace themselves for who they are
Then, we won’t resort to “i must not be enough” & instead we resort to “that’s interesting...”
But we question the power in words & instead empower ourselves & others to make the decisions based on their true desires & freedom of expression
What do you think?
