I submitted an image recently, the ‘dick pic’ I was shocked and overwhelmed to see it on your blog. Seeing it filled my heart with joy, nerves, excitement, a small bit of pride, and again nerves. ha. Thank you.
As I stated in that submission, it was my first time ever posting a nude photograph of myself. I just wanted to share why I exactly I did so. I have just undergone numerous momentous changes in my life. All of which signify the beginning of something new and the end of a long period of self inflicted recluse and mostly being ‘stuck in a rut’.
I made a promise to myself to use these changes as the excuse to kick-start my life again. Build back the relationships I have lost and was losing, both with friends and family. But most importantly with myself. Many reasons contributed to me losing or more so letting go of myself. I could feel parts of me drifting away. I wanted them back, and more. I am encouraging myself to try new things, with a new mentality of ‘try anything once’ (like submitting a nude image). That submission to me represented ownership,rediscovery, self expression, openness, a risk, a first, and many other things which grew me.
This submission is to depict where the first one came from. A man who feels segmented and shattered. A man who made a promise to himself to pull himself back together, rebuild, and reinvent. Thank you for aiding in this process. Go raibh maith agat.
We’re happy to have been a contributing factor to your development and to hear you’re working on rebuilding yourself. We change and evolve so much in our lives and it’s these points of tension where we feel we really have to push ourselves to be different where we really allow ourselves to grow. Thanks for another great image.
