Hayll - I love lingerie, I feel so empowered and body confident. They make me feel like there’s nothing I can’t do.
Don’t do anything you don’t feel comfortable with. Your safety comes first and if it doesn’t feel right, don’t do it!
I’ve turned down “collabs” and work in the past for not feeling comfortable.
It’s important to trust who you are working with to get the best images.
TFP is a great way to get a portfolio and a good representation within the field to progress.
I live by 2 rules.
1- Don’t do harm to yourself.
2- Don’t do harm to anyone else.
As long as I’m living by those rules then I’m happy that I’m doing ok in life. I’ve spent so much of my life, NOT doing things, in fear of upsetting other people. Some people may not like what decisions and choices you make, but is it harming them; or is it just that their opinion might be a little different from yours? As long as you’re not causing any harm, then why not do what you want to! Life is too short! I’m not here for a long time, I’m here for a good time.
As Alan Watts once said, “We thought about life by analogy with a journey, like there was some destination we were trying to get to, but we missed the point the whole way along. It was a musical thing and you were supposed to sing or to dance while the music was being played”
I intend to sing and dance my way through my life. And you should too!
If you’re thinking of trying modelling, then at least try it before giving up. So many women of all ages, and all sizes, are beautiful, you just need to see it for yourself. After all, in life, we only ever regret the chances that we didn’t take. So take the chance!!
Self confidence is not something what we can just pick up when we need it unfortunately, it takes lots of work, lots of failing and lots of progress. If you are one, who feels unhappy being in your skin, then is time for a change. Changes are hard. Very hard, but in the end it will worth it. Start small, put goals in front of yourself and when you reach it, celebrate yourself with putting a bigger one in your way.
It can be anything, what you wanted. Cutting your hair, going to gym, or have tattoos from head to toes. The key for is not giving up! Keep going, even if it hurts, or mentally destroys us. Have to learn to be brave and see the bigger picture. Never be shy to ask for help, we are all learning till the last day of our life, asking for help is a wise decision not a weak one.
