I struggled all my life with accepting the beauty that was within me. Whenever I looked at my naked self, I used to see the curves I wish were thinner, firmer or rounder. Or the scars that are on my body and face, the bruises... all of the "I wishes."
I used to wear full makeup. Not because I wanted to enhance my features but to hide and rebuild my features. I used to dress my body in jewels, not to show the light within me but to distract others' eyes to the jewelry I was wearing.
