Body image anxieties and the dreaded locker room shower!

Body Image Anxieties At The Gym Showers
My first experience with social nudity and being unclothed in a public setting was a lot less radical than I would have initially believed. I had been dreading this day for all my life. The day when I ‘d need to undress so that you can shower naked in my own physical education class.
This was one of my biggest fears
When the terrible day eventually arrived I was really surprised to comprehend that other guys were shy about the experience also. The truth is, decided to only avoid showering completely. I kept my eyes off of other people and proceeded to head to the shower. The whole time I focused just on my showering and tried to discount the fact that other naked guys were showering with me.
After awhile I started to feel much more comfortable showering nude in my physical education class. I was even able to encourage one among my friends who was afraid of showering naked in front of other folks that it was not so bad. Eventually it got to a point where showering nude was no longer an issue in the slightest. I accepted the fact that everyone is naturally naked and that people come in all shapes and sizes. I realized that we should not have these artificial impositions of being naked in front of other folks be such a big deal. I understood that my body image issues and fear of being naked was just a panic that I ‘d to get past.
Hey If Doogie Can Be Happy Nude 🙂
Now that I can shower nude comfortably in a public setting, I no longer feel a feeling of being uncomfortable when I will be nude. Becoming past my fear of being nude is one of the best things that I could have perhaps done for my self-esteem. I was even able to play on sports teams also, something I had formerly feared as a result of that I may have had to shower nude with my teammates.
I am certain that many young boys share exactly the same fears. The only bit of advise I can give is that, at the end of the day, no one actually cares. But with that said, nearly every single person in the world wishes they could change something about the way they seem.
Naturism, I feel, is a vital movement. Not for seeing others naked but instead to instruct us that accepting others is one of greatest things we can do. I really believe that if more folks were receptive to attempting nudism the world would be much better off! At least for me, it helped with my Body Image Fears.
