U is for Unashamed

UnashamedI am naked. So are you.

Most of the time, we’re in a desperate struggle to hide our truth from everyone else. Even the ones we love. We cringe and utter silent thought-prayers, hoping no one will notice the flaws that are painfully obvious to us.

  • Fat
  • Awkward
  • Saggy
  • Dumb
  • Ugly
  • Paunchy
  • Greasy
  • Smelly

And that doesn’t even scratch the surface.

We laugh about our inner flaws, because we’re terrified we’ll be judged. (Or maybe we’re just terrified.)

Ha! We laugh.

  • “Love that chocolate! Nom, nom, nom.” [Can’t shake the weight. Why bother anymore?"]
  • Starbucks is my church.” [Coffee is my God.]
  • “Those Downton Abbey maids work so hard. How is that fair?” [I don’t tip waitresses. They need to get a real job.]
  • “Making love by candlelight is so sexy.” [You can’t tell I’m imagining it’s someone else.]

Why are we hiding? Why aren’t we unashamed?
