Instagram Musings: No Makeup

View this post on Instagram

I’ve finally started to get used to seeing myself without makeup. I’ve never really been comfortable without it but I’m working to accept it. To be honest, I’ve had a hard time dealing with my post partum appearance. My body’s not where I want it to be, I have to wear clothes that are easy to nurse in (basically gym clothes) and there’s no sense in putting on makeup when I rarely leave the house. All this piles up and leaves me ultimately feeling unattractive. My clothes, makeup and hair have always been crutches, supporting my fragile self-confidence. When they are taken away, I crumble. So this all has been a good growing experience for me. I’m once again starting from scratch and learning to find the beauty in my true, raw self. 📸: Selah, my 4-year-old
