The Freedom Modesty Brings

Courtesty LDS Media Library

That title? Not my words. They came from Kaylin Koslosky. This is a short post. I would only like to draw some attention to the Chastity Project and to a post on their site by Kaylin, “I Never Knew a Bikini Could Hide So Much.” Among other things she says:

Modesty veils physical beauty in a world obsessed with it, in order to reveal the inner beauty that is often overlooked. It prevents lust, harmful comparisons, and insecurity and gives rise to confidence and a greater capacity to love yourself and others by recognizing your own worth without needing the affirmation of each person that sees you.

It is hard to turn back once you discover the freedom modesty brings.

Wherever you are at in this journey ask yourself this: What beauty am I revealing to the world, and is it leading me to the love my heart yearns for? But beware! You may be starting down a path of no return.

You do not veil yourself because you believe you are ugly, you veil yourself because you know that you are beautiful.

I was inspired by Kaylin’s wise and courageous words. I hope you are too.
