I was struck by this line in an article on dating: "Inviting someone to look at you is the first step in inviting them into your lives."
An area where I've felt most vulnerable, for a host of reasons, is when I dress up. I love fashion, but I hesitate to wear even my best pieces for fear of people looking at me. How's that for intimacy issues?
I like this re-framing. Time to let my more fashionable side show!
