    Making Our Own Connections

    I grew up thinking that I wasn't good enough or worthy of a good family or true friends. I was alone, lonely, and self hatred had gotten to me. I need to be nurtured, cared for and listen too. I just never wanted to be accepting of that when I was young and in to my later teen...

    most people suck at taking photos. they get the lighting wrong, and can't retouch them to make them look good. because of this, I'd rather not have my picture taken.

    If this was a choice that society would let us make I would be naked all the time. I am a new convert to nudity and thoroughly enjoy my time without clothes.
