Because we have told women that there is a standard of beauty that makes them think that they have to do things to themselves that they aren’t naturally…. to look like something that aren’t naturally, as if who they are is not beautiful. So women have manipulated their hair, their asses, their breasts & lips, and all of this for some standard of beauty that is not natural. As if we are these airbrushed creatures that are just an object for desire, and that is not what women are. Women are way fuller creatures and beings than that. Our sexuality is something that we should own and hold, share as we choose when we choose, not because it’s the way to get love and be loved. And that is a part of that.

★Libra is a sign that is particularly drawn to symmetry, equilibrium and harmony. We may marvel at the symmetry of a butterfly, and the laws of nature, but for Libra symmetry is pleasing to the eye.★

You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment.  People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously.  Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life.  Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day!  So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!!  Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions.  Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it.  With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!

We are right here!!
