May the other know when I’m scared, and take me in his arms without asking too many questions. May the other be able to notice when I need silence and do not go away slamming the door May the other accepts that I worry about him and do not get angry with my concern, and if it is excessive, know how to say me this clearly and with good humor. May the other notices my weaknesses and do not laugh at me or take advantage of it… That if I’m just tired the other does not just think that I’m nervous, or sick, or aggressive, or say that I complain too much That if I begin to cry for no reason after one of those days, the other does not suspect immediately that it is his fault, or that I don’t love him anymore. That if I’m in a bad phase, the other may be my accomplice... That if I get excited about something the other doesn’t slow me down. That if I eventually lose my patience, lose my grace and lose my composure, may the other still think I’m beautiful and admire me.

And then, sometimes there are days like these, when that slow, steady effort, is rewarded with justice, that arrives like a thunderbolt. This morning the Supreme Court recognized that the Constitution guarantees marriage equality. And doing so they’ve reaffirmed that all americans are in title to the equal protection of the law. That all people should be treated equally, regardless of who they are, or who they love.

-President Barack Obama

I LOOK my best after a entire hair and makeup team has spent hours perfecting me.

I FEEL my best when I haven’t looked in a mirror for days, and I’m doing things that make me happy.

It’s a rare breed of woman who truly doesn’t care about her appearance, and there are some women who only care about their appearance. But most of us fall in the middle — wanting to be appreciated and loved and valued for more than how we look, but unable to completely expunge all interest in our outward image. If this is where most of us live, shouldn’t we be asking for acceptance to be in this middle space? Can you honestly say that if someone wanted to put you on a magazine cover tomorrow that you would have no investment in looking your best? Isn’t it normal to hope that the picture of you is not taken from a horrible angle the moment you wake up and at the same time be concerned with society’s obsession about the ubiquitous worship of an unattainable ideal of the female form?
