There will always be moments in your life when you feel vulnerable, awkward, and insecure.  You will find yourself questioning even the littlest things you do.  Just remember that your feelings are valid, and you deserve wonderful people and experiences in your life.  You deserve to be happy.  But try to feed that happiness to others, as well.  Try to be kind to others.Kindness resonates beyond its receiver.  The ripple effect of love is a beautiful thing.  I want to inspire others and bring love and acceptance to the world through body positivity.  I hope people can grow past the sexualized state of bodies that society has implemented, because I choose when I am being sexual, and now is not the time.  So try to get comfy in your weird, fleshy blanket, and let yourself be warmed by your own body.  You are capable of such incredible self love.

(ps: if you reblog this on porn blogs, I’m going to have to summon the goddesses Hera and Athena to come down and break all of your internet devices)

TOP 5 SHYB Frequently Asked Questions:

5) What can I wear to conceal trouble areas/flatter my body?

I want to steer away from the idea that we should be hiding our insecurities and try to learn how to embrace them. There’s probably many spaces online that have that kind of advice on “what to wear” but personally I am making an effort to be body positive and wear anything I like shamelessly. I will be practicing being proud of the body I am in when I am in it. I will be proud of my love handles, I will be proud of my hips and thighs.
