Although i’ve chosen modesty, there is something extremely beautiful about nudity.
But there is a sacred beauty that can only be felt when seen by the person who deserves you.
Knowing that only they get to see you
With nothing to hide behind
Bare and breathing
And beautiful

As a woman growing up in the West, I can personally say that I’m seeing a trend that deeply concerns me.

We are bombarded with 400-600 advertisements a day, and at least 50% of them are issues pertaining to physical attractiveness. If you rely solely on media to get you by, you’ll encounter many…

"I’ve found that growing up means being honest. About what I want. What I need. What I feel. Who I am."

Epiphany. (via psych-facts)

I love passionate people

that light that enters their eyes when they start talking about something they love

the little arm gestures they make

the massive smile that slips onto their face when they realise someone’s listening

I just love passionate, enthusiastic people and I wish more people would be like that

"I want us to make each other better."

Fox spent much of its VMA coverage questioning Beyonce’s ability to promote feminism while being "extremely sexual."  

Megyn Kelly labeled Beyonce’s message and lyrics as “skanky,” while a FoxNews.com article claimed the singer “seemed to ensure her behind was the focus on each song, all the while educating young viewers about feminism.”

On The Five, Fox hosts suggested “she’s auditioning for a future husband,” and Greg Gutfeld announced that ”the greatest thing about pop culture is convincing women that acting like strippers is empowering.” 

What Fox failed to recognize is that expressing sexuality does not automatically remove a woman’s right to discuss equality. Instead, the network righteously slut-shamed Beyonce and used her performance as basis to attack feminism as a whole. In reality, such policing of women’s sexuality has harmed progress toward equality. The very same mindset has been used to dismiss women’s need to access contraception, and blame rape survivors for their own assaults. 

If anyone is going to be shamed, it should be Fox and its irresponsible coverage of women’s issues. 

I am lost without God.
