A friend of mine posted something on Facebook the other day that, well, really ticked me off. It wasn’t so much that she said it, but the reality of the truth behind what she said, when it should be the furthest thing from the truth.
A woman’s beauty is supposed to be her grand project and constant insecurity. We’re meant to shellac our lips with five different glosses, but always think we’re fat. Beauty is Zeno’s paradox. We should endlessly strive for it, but it’s not socially acceptable to admit we’re there. We can’t perceive it in ourselves. It belongs to the guy screaming “nice tits”.
A couple days ago, I shared with you about a new community project that Tamara is graciously putting together. This project is a book birthed in pain, feelings of worthlessness, and being used. A book about What a Woman is Worth. I’m grateful for Tamara’s authenticity that led to this project, and am glad to support her in this. But, this message is for the men, and my tone is for the men.
Before you read any further, you need to read Tamara’s story that served as the catalyst for this much needed project, otherwise anything I say after this will be without context, and confusing.

Tamara, one of the writers I’ve come across through A Deeper Story, and one who I’ve come to respect for her raw authenticity is taking on a new project. A project birthed in pain, feelings of worthlessness, and being used.
