The #1 Thing People Get Wrong About Nude

November 04, 2021



The fact is that the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.

The problem is when we’re on autopilot for so long that we forget we’re on autopilot.

Because when we’re not even aware of our own habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, then we no longer control them they control us.

The problem is we think that once we’ve done something we’ll never have to think about it or do it again. That’s not true. You can learn, even on autopilot, from mistakes that you’ve made. For example, the first time you put on a pair of jeans, you might be so excited about how pretty you look that you forget to check to see if they fit.

It's not only about how you look when you put on your shoes.

It's about the context of your action. If you decide to walk barefoot, you are in an entirely different context than someone who is wearing flip-flops.

I have a friend who decided to go out for a couple of drinks and forgot to look at the weather. When she came home, she realized that it was raining. She called me up and said that she had a huge stain on her pants. She was in a pretty weird mood because she was embarrassed that she forgot that she had just come out of the shower. But she was also in a weird mood because she was embarrassed to be naked.

It would be a mistake to think that having to bare your entire body to get out of a shower is a bad thing. On the contrary, it’s actually one of the most liberating experiences you can have when you’re on your own. The most common complaint I hear about nudity is its lack of privacy, and that is something that nudity can (and should) improve on.

When you’re naked and exposed, you’re able to think and feel with full freedom.

The problem is that we usually expect to be able to do that when we're naked and exposed. Sure, you can still feel ashamed to be naked, but that is something you can help change. It certainly shouldn’t get in the way of your enjoyment of your body.


The problem with nudity is that it makes you feel inadequate. As a result, when you wear lingerie to a party you think it is the height of stupidity to wear it in public (or even in a bar, if you like). It is so common that people even wear lingerie for a night out on the town, and people are even offended if you wear something that is too revealing.

The problem here is that being naked is an ego-busting thing.

To put it simply, if you are naked, you don't care what anyone thinks of you. You are not going to feel ashamed of the skin you have on your body. To be naked, you are so self-aware that you realize that you are the most beautiful thing ever. What your body is is the manifestation of your self-image.
