Body Image: Getting Something off my Chest

This is part of an ever expanding series on body image and mirror work.

Had planned to save the breast for last…(sorry, really couldn’t quite hold back)

So alas I find myself being drawn to post the part of my body I have loved the most.

They are my breast assets, in my humble opinion both energetically and physically.

These breasts, they carry the energy of my heart, my love both for my children and others.

Long, easily stimulated pencil eraser tip nips;

The cherries on top of darkened areolas, the peak of mounding soft flesh of DD/DDD proportions, depending on who’s measuring, of course.

More than a mouth or handful for sure.
they can be a source of both pleasure
and contempt for me,

Having preferred for so long to keep them in hiding.

They were something I prized, yet I couldn’t tolerate the hunger I could see them create within a man’s eyes,

with their voluptuous size and ever prominent erect nipples unless hidden, unbidden under excessive padding.

Now as I continue to embrace and have greater compassion for this woman of great fire and passion, I begin to flaunt doing my best to balance the taunt, treading somewhat between doing so cautiously and precariously.

These breasts a pillow for only a handful of fellows, yet the producers of much pleasure and the white gold of a mother. They nourished my children as babies and toddlers, bearing the burden of their nutrition.

These breasts, no longer a source of unbidden suffering finally now for me a wholesome and nutritious source of celebration.

Writing out my thoughts has helped me to gain a new perspective of myself. In sharing these writings, it is my hope to help others to better understand themselves. It is my belief that with each of us who chooses this path of greater understanding of thy self, that it inspires others to do the same. This building momentum is the force that drives me to share, for in my vulnerability, I find my strength. I believe that you can also find yours there. ~~~In reading some of my posts, you will see that growth is not always pretty. It is in breaking apart and coming undone that a seed sprouts and breaks free of its own captivity. It is also out of mud that the lotus blossoms. ~~~Please join me in seeing the beauty of growth within the deconstruction of our limiting beliefs. ~~T.C.

  1. You are very welcome. I loved these lines “These breasts a pillow for only a handful of fellows, yet the producers of much pleasure and the white gold of a mother. They nourished my children as babies and toddlers, bearing the burden of their nutrition.”

    How true! Something that triggers lust and lecherous thoughts is also the source of life giving energy to another soul. A woman’s body in itself personifies the very essence of women. It can be an attractive asset, a sensuous instrument, an embodiment of love, a protective warmth at different times and sometimes all at the same time.

  2. You should get a little more of your chest…like that top! πŸ˜‰ This is a delicious photo and wish I was among the fortunate fellows to rest my head upon them. πŸ™‚ Glad to see you accepting and celebrating your charms…

  3. That is indeed sacred territory – life giving and tantalizing – nourishing and redeeming. You are blessed to have them and thank you for a small glimpse – perfectly crafted wonders. Wow — just …wow.

  4. I love that you are celebrating your body! I often find women saying the opposite- that they hate this and that. And while I do empathize with the struggle to accept every part of you, I find it so refreshing that you are being so positive.
    I recently got myself properly fitted for a bra and now, not only am I so so much more comfortable, I found a new appreciation for those things on my chest. I pretty much want to shove anyone who is in need of a hug into my breasts for a good squishy snuggle. I really think everyone could benefit! Hee hee. πŸ™‚

    1. Vic, thank you for your lovely support! And now that you’re more supported yourself, so lovely to hear you’re sharing your charms.
      Yes, I’m leaning to be more loving and less critical of me! I am also tired of hearing the complaining! I hope my post comes off more as acknowledging.
      Lovely to hear from you!

      1. Well, I am not actually sharing my charms (love that), but i always want to. I suspect I’d get into trouble if I gave out as many squishy boob hugs as I felt the urge to. So many people are hurting, it seems. This is a great post because it’s so positive. Makes me smile.

      2. Thank you, Vic! Oh, I give hugs frequently, though I work intimately with patients who have pelvic pain and other problems, so it’s a bit different than most PTs or even healthcare professionals. ❀️ I love your support! I hope to read more of your work tonight!
