Treating My Body With Respect


I will not dress like a ho, I will dress with respect. I will not dress in skin-tight, spandex clothing, I will dress with respect. The Bible says that your body is a temple of Yahweh, so I think that it more than deserves to be treated with respect.

A favorite modesty quote of mine is,” Modesty doesn’t have to mean frumpy. ” It can be frumpy, but it doesn’t have to be.

I do my best not to be judgmental of other people. It’s difficult at times, but I want to scream sometimes when I see a woman in tights, leaving absolutely nothing of her lower half to the imagination. I think the way a person dresses reflects their self-esteem and how they think of themselves. Of course, some people don’t know how they look in the clothing they don ( I remember being one of those people! ).

I am considering trying to get a long shirt and some jeans. Would that be okay, for someone like me? I mean, I’m a fairly average sized person weight wise. But I’m 5 feet 5 inches and a half. I’m taller than some of my dance teachers. I’m even as tall as 15 year olds. People have mistaken me to be that age before.

I don’t know if my ( modest ) style of dress will change in the years to come, but my Yahweh will be my support all the way through it. 🙂
