Hi, this is my tummy as of right this second. I used to desire abs and a dark tan. Recently, I’ve chosen to embrace my softness and pale skin as strengths and it seems that people are noticing. Never before have I felt such a warm comfort from friends and strangers concerning my image. It feels great to find such lovely confidence. I find my tummy beautiful now!

Even though many people have pointed out that I am a slim girl, I still feel insecure about my body but it wasn’t until I took this picture did I finally get some confidence about my body :) (age 19)

One of my biggest insecurities is my stretch marks. After I had my son I was covered in them. It’s been over two years and the deep gashes have made no progress on disappearing.

So in an attempt to try to not hate them (and myself) as much, here they are.

Okay so when I’m high I think I’m so pretty. That’s why I love Mary Jane she makes me so comfortable in my skin. So when I’m high I usually take really confident pictures of myself like the ones above, but I’ve never actually gone through with posting them. So right now I’m posting them so people see how happy I am in my skin. I learned to love every piece of me. It’s okay to be happy with who you are. They say the one who is confident in her skin is sexy but that one who doesn’t know she’s sexy is Beautiful. Well I say fuck that! We need to be confident, this is the skin we were born in too and the skin we’re growing old in so let’s enjoy being who we are! If any of you ever need to talk or simply someone to listen, i’m here crazycrush.tumblr.com

He took my hand in his, guiding my fingertips along the skin of his thighs, I could feel the softness separated by streams of pale white skin- stretchmarks- connecting and weaving throughout his skin, I was a cartographer documenting new territory, letting my fingers trace over the small lines that seamed to keep him intact…Creating interlocking puzzle pieces of skin in their wake as if without them glueing him together he’d disapear into a thousand bits and pieces, magical. He brought my face to his and whispered softly “we all have them, they’re not bad”.
