I find confidence in revealing my insecurities to the world. By doing so, I’ve found that I am accepted just as I always was (sometimes more so!) and what I thought were flaws that needed to be hidden actually look pretty normal in the light of day.
People are drawn towards realness, and I’ve found my imperfections to be much better received than a facade of perfection- which just seems fake. Vulnerability is scary, but it’s empowering.
