The Scum In Us

You may wonder if there is an art to taking the cloth off your body, peeling the touch of an ex-lover off your skin, removing the weight of the world from your shoulders and silencing the voice of the nay-Sayers; all in a bid to reveal your glorious self to the world.

It depends on who you  ask.

From a model’s perspective, I would say yes. There is a method to undressing and dressing up between runways, fashions shows, shoot and the likes; fast, efficient and carefully.

From the perspective of a writer, yes too. There is an art to sieving opinions and words in your head. Ensuring that only the good stays inside of you, while pruning the harmful thoughts and letting go of all that already let go of you.

From the perspective of a life learner, which we probably all are; I have learnt that there is indeed a tactic to undressing, whether opening up to a perfect stranger or dearly loved one.
Maybe stark naked (living little to imagination about your life),
semi-clad (giving some details about your life, while withholding others) or
fully clothed (no display picture even, on social media).

The time will  come when you may need to undress, to go out there and showcase your craft, because you were not created for yourself alone. Hence the need for intentional self-revelation. And when you stand wondering in the corridor of self doubt, do understand that you will be fine in the end. Because the perfection portrayed by others is often an illusion. For we are all flawed humans trying to flourish despite it.

This intentional self-revelation that enables you cast off the yoke of self-doubt, venomous opinions and fear, is like undressing and should be mastered.

Finally, whether you choose to undress or remain clothed, just endeavor to live your best life truly.

It is okay to undress every once in a while,

To Live free and express your truth. Let the world get a dose of your awesomeness.

P.S. I would love to read your thoughts in the comment section, and don’t forget to subscribe.
