The Narrative Of The Semi Nude Faculty Party That Helped In Taking My Nude Body:
Taking My Naked Body – My body was something to be hidden, black and god forbid – revealed in public.
During high school, I began working on enhancing my self esteem. As the days turned into weeks, I started to see that looking at my nude body in the mirror was becoming easier. I began to feel more and more comfortable being naked (by myself). Nevertheless, the idea of someone else seeing my nude body was still not an option. All this changed once I got to college.
Taking My Naked Body
Once I began school, I felt overwhelmed by the number of people I considered wonderful. It seemed like everyone was thin, confident and appealing. How was I going to live here???
I discussed with some close friends about the issue. My buddies asked me what I thought of folks who did not do their make up every morning or who weren’t thin enough to be a model. I told them I didn’t think any differently of them and that they were just people if you ask me. My friends asked me why I believed that folks would think otherwise of me. I did not have an answer.
Then it came to me Most people do not care what you look like. If they didn’t like my appearance, they did not need to look. After that, my confidence grew. It was a slow process, but it was working.
I had never been comfortable attending parties at my university. So many of them were pajama parties, knickers celebrations and perhaps even naked parties. If I was just beginning to feel comfortable looking at my nude body, how was I going to reveal it to anyone else?
Afterward came the day once I was invited to a college Halloween bash. http://troyxxx.com/tube/not-sure-which-is-the-bravest-so-here-are-all-of-them/ had helped me so much in raising my self esteem which I thought, “why not!” That night, I had my first encounter with social nudity. Almost http://nudenudist.com/tube/my-first-ever-time-going-really-nude-with-other-people-around/ was showing! But they didn’t. Some were even fully naked and a few were covered in nothing but body paint. They were all just having a great time – partying and laughing. It was an excellent evening. I left the party feeling more confident than ever.
I don’t know if I ‘ll ever rid myself of my body image problems. Nor am I confident that I will ever be able to look at my nude body with complete recognition. What I do know is that my first encounter with public nudity was a fun one. One that helped me in my on-going procedure for raising my self-esteem and self-acceptance (if not “body love”).
