The Backdrop

REPOST : For years I used to trip of being “slim” – (I’ve been the same weight since High School). Being called skinny and bony and frail (and all that) used to get to me. Especially as a man in this body-conscious country. *Note: I was NOT the dude getting sand kicked in my face – for the record. I was never that guy. I digress… I was good in sports and athletic, but I would try weight gain protein, lifting, stuffing my face, drinking high-carb beer..and so on. Nuthin. I realized how I overcompensated by being a huge risk-taker, challenging, and just not giving a damn. And, admittedly, I LIKE pissing on fire hydrants. Once again, I digress… I must add that I have also benefited greatly from this experience. It made me strong-minded. And resilient. Anyone on this Facebook thang, that knows me, knows that I’ve been through hell (like you). Put myself through hell (like you). And I’m still standing (like you). But one thing I HAVE been is: 100. I’ve never been fake. I’ve never kissed ass. I’ve sacrificed a lot for what I believe in. And everyone knows, I Will Stand Alone. My point is this: Who gives a shit? Do you. Be me. Love, the skinny guy. And I love you. We all have our insecurities. I thank you for allowing a space to have shared mine. Happy Monday Fama and Friends!! Love yourself. Completely. #artsnobagency
