When Is It OK To Go Barefoot At Your Dentist?
A couple of months ago, I posted a post on Twitter and Instagram that went viral.
It was a simple question about whether or not it was ok to go barefoot at your dentist.
I had never been to a dentist that I thought had the kind of respect and care that I would find at a major American dental hospital.
But after the experience of having to go in the back of a dental car, I knew that I didn’t want to go back to being embarrassed by my body.
I was not ashamed of my health, I just wanted to be safe.
A few days later, I sent out an email to my friends and family asking them to do the same.
That was the beginning of a conversation about how we should all think about being comfortable and comfortable in our own bodies.
The conversation has grown into a global conversation about body positivity.
We have come a long way in so long, but there is still so much work to be done.
I’m not going to stop talking about how much work there is.
When I hear people say that there’s still a long ways to go, I have to remember that we’re still living in the early stages of this conversation, and it’s a very dangerous time.
I feel as though I’m on a journey, and we’re all on a path.
So, in the next few weeks, I’ll be taking the time to reflect on how we can continue to improve our bodies, as well as our communities, while embracing and respecting each other.
I hope that I’ll inspire others to go on a similar journey and share their stories, and hopefully inspire a new conversation.
