Women aren’t the only ones told to look a certain way

Hooray for the Male Body!

please don’t feel bad for not being able to love yourself!

loving yourself is a long and difficult process and it involves a lot of deprogramming yourself from the harmful bullshit that society and people have told you. you shouldn’t be made to feel weak or a failure for struggling with that.

take your time, and when you do feel able to love yourself, it’ll be wonderful and genuine and not a rushed fake thing

in the mean time, please take care of yourself!

Had breakfast with my Best Buddy this morning and look at how beautiful it was. Pretty coffee and even better company started my day off right.
Good luck this week. Especially to my fellow college students, hang in there.

Here’s what our parents never taught us:

You will stay up on your rooftop until sunlight peels away the husk of the moon,
chainsmoking cigarettes and reading Baudelaire, and
you will learn that you only ever want to fall in love with someone
who will stay up to watch the sun rise with you.

You will fall in love with train rides, and sooner or later you will
realize that nowhere seems like home anymore.

A woman will kiss you and you’ll think her lips are two petals
rubbing against your mouth.

You will not tell anyone that you liked it.
It’s okay.
It is beautiful to love humans in a world where love is a metaphor for lust.

You can leave if you want, with only your skin as a carry-on.

All you need is a twenty in your pocket and a bus ticket.
All you need is someone on the other end of the map, thinking about the supple
curves of your body, to guide you to a home that stretches out for miles
and miles on end.

You will lie to everyone you love.
They will love you anyways.

One day you’ll wake up and realize that you are too big for your own skin.

Molt.
Don’t be afraid.

Your body is a house where the shutters blow in and out
against the windowpane.

You are a hurricane-prone area.
The glass will break through often.

But it’s okay. I promise.

Remember,
a stranger once told you that the breeze
here is something worth writing poems about.

In case any of my followers were wondering what I look like currently. The picture of me on the left was taken on September 29, 2012 and the picture on the right was taken during my Spring Break trip to CO on March 27, 2013. I know almost a month ago, but look at my ridiculous face!

Also I pierced my eyebrow the Friday Spring Break started, talk about the way to start the week!

Girls and guys!! Don’t let anyone try to shame you into presenting yourself in a way that doesn’t make you feel 100% confident and good about yourself. Rock your body and your aesthetic and let others rock theirs.
