I absolutely love and agree with this! Love is NOT blind at all. To love someone means that you know them inside and out (the good, the bad and the ugly) and you love them all the same. In fact… the more you know, the more you should love. When you are able to be that transparent and real with someone, it should intensify and add value to the relationship in positive ways.

I do not know if it has to do with ego or seeking acceptance that draws a person to a modeling career, because it is something totally out of the realm of my thoughts. What fascinates me about models is the freedom they need to show off their bodies to do their job. Having been a much larger sized person, I never lost that former image of myself. It is the bully in my brain that I aways see first whenever I see a reflection of myself. For years I wore oversized, dark clothing so I could pretend to be more of a shadow than an actual live human being.
