A blogger and tweeter I follow and admire, that has written and spoken honestly and candidly about body image and the sense of self. Her Sinful Sunday Post today is a rightful celebration, in an a lovely image.
Body image is such a subject isn’t it? In real life I and sometimes a very confident version of a self that I need to portray.
Online I know I am a roustabout fool. I am offline too.
But it’s a facade isn’t it?
I decided to take one photo. Allow myself some editing. Nut I had to use the one photo I took. And this was it.
I can fake confidence like the best of them but I am riddled with the body conscious fears of a 45 year old man, newly single after 20 years. I don’t loathe what I see. But I don’t like it.
The lovely thing about these posts are that people sometimes pop in and then leave supportive counter comments to challenge the posters view of self. There is no need for this.
