Today I was changing channels on the TV and came across a documentary about finding a lost tribe of people in the amazon. And I couldn’t help but think of how these poor people will be changed forever and their culture lost.
Every time they find some lost indigenous tribe of people in the jungle, they find happy, content, loving people with no body issues. They spend their day going about their daily routine naked as the day they were born. No one covers up in shame, no one is offended by the sight of a naked child, no one makes fun of anyone because their butt is too big, or their boobs are too small, they accept each other for who they are and enjoy life.
My sister and I are fortunate to live in a clothing optional home. If we don’t feel like wearing clothes today, no one will make a big deal about it. None of our nudist friends or family have body issues. We are all confident, self-assured individuals. No one has an eating disorder, no one has social anxiety. No one judges how our body looks or makes negative comments.
How wonderful would it be if everyone were raised in a clothing optional home, and everyone had a chance to grow up without shame or body issues? It starts with the parent…how will you raise your child?
