I Am Comfortable In My Own Skin

    It's taken me a hell of a long time

    but I think I'm starting to become more comfortable in my own skin. Growing up feeling "different and getting a lot of crap for it really had me feeling pretty terrible and I had a lot of body image issues and confidence issues. As I got older I slowly have become more and more...

    I'm always myself 100%.

    I love showing off because I'm proud of myself and I love my body. How could anyone not love this? :)

    I am far from perfect,

    but I accept who I am. It's lovely to relax and be comfortable as I am. I don't have the time or energy to care about what others say. Don't get me wrong, I didn't always think this, I was bullied for being 'an ugly freak' for years. Well, just look at me now! I've achieved...

    Is It Wrong?

    I can't constantly checkout other people about how they're looking, etc. I don't pay attention to others that much. That's it. I'll look at people in other ways. I'll notice if somebody is wearing their hair in a unique braid, or if someone is looking cleaner than they used to...

    Finding My Skin

    I joined Second Life a few years back and I came to know so many new walks of life. I've always found that I learned more about the world and myself by interacting with people from different walks of life and and parts of the world. If you can open your mind to new ideas you may...

    Who better to know yourself

    than you? I'm not perfect but not flawed either. It takes a certain kind of person to know and understand me. I'm comfortable being alone and go place to place. I don't open up to very many people, which means I'm comfortable inside myself. Not very well understood by others...

    I am me. Fleur Blois.

    An artist. I enjoy being me! There is a struggle, yes, understandable so, with the world of today. I am happier now than perhaps I have been the whole twenty three years I've been alive. At least I know what I want to do for the rest of my life!

    The moment that my life began was the moment

    that I stopped caring what people thought of me. I do what makes me happy. I smile often and I'm happy either single or with someone. These simple, yet fundamental things seem nonexistent in the lives of most people that I encounter.

    I have the natural shape of a typical Hispanic

    woman. I have embraced my curves and found them to be a blessing and you can't love yourself if you don't like the body your in! You only get one so embrace it and if you don't like it change it. Either way I think you should embrace what you've been given ☺️❤️

    It doesn't thrill me

    and I still wish it was clearer and less prone to acne, especially after all these years, but it's kind of like an old pair of shoes that I've worn down until it's comfortable. Mind you, I still wish for those expensive designer ones, but I know i can't afford them, and even if...

    Hard to imagine someone

    who isn't! Why not enjoy being naked... certainly there are lots of people out there who will enjoy you in that state :).

    For a long time I didn't understand what this

    meant. First time I heard it used was about a drop dead gorgeous French guy who had it all, looks, charm, money etc. etc. I thought "He would looking like that" Then I thought it was about acceptance of your own looks but for me that is still only part of it - it is about...

    It Took A While.

    It took time and acceptance, but finally, I'm content.

    Feel Like I've Always Been Comfortable In My Own Skin

    As a kid, I went through a little identity crisis when I realized I was gay, but from then on I've never felt more confident about who I am as a person. You could ask me just about anything about myself, and I would never answer, "Well I don't really know at this point." I am...

    I like me. I'm like John Candy's character Del

    in Planes, Trains, & Automobiles. It doesn't bother me if someone doesn't like me because I do. Of course I do like it if people do like me because I am human after all.:)

    I'm 27 years old. I believe in taking care of

    myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy I'll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel...
