Have read so much over the years about nudism naturism, and how all encompassing it is and irrespective of looks everyone is seena s a valued individual.
I was born to an American father who is 25 years older than my English mother, on 11th April 1997, and given the name Hexley Adam Torin the Third, my Dad being H T the second. A name guaranteed to get me picked on and bullied in school, and didnt disappoint in that way.
My Dad who is a Clergyman, says it would toughen me up, but actually It taught me when to run away, and when to walk.
After attending 4 primary schools I finally went to boarding school, where the bullying became much more iventive, and unpleasant.. I was also diagnosed around this time with a delayed puberty syndrome, which meant that aged 15 I still looked like I was 8. Imagine that in the communal showers of boarding school my life was a nightmare of bullying, teasing, and physical abuse. Which caused me to make a stupid pointless suicide attempt ages 16. But I survived, thanks to a school nurse.
Since those days I have changed my outlook on life totally, I will treat everyone as I am treated by them,I have met some really lovely people here who have interacted with me, and treated me as I feel Naturists should treat each other with respect, and dignity, but also with an enormous amount of humour, I mean we all look weird naked lets be honest, but thats the whole point accepting other peoples weirdness, as they accept ours. I continue to be a coward preferring to walk before the need to run arises.
I know that for a site like this accepting me for who I am is virtually impossible, as my Avatar shows I look about 15 (on a good day) and naked it just gets worse.
So I feel privileged to have made the acquaintance of those beautiful, open minded people on here, but feel maybe it is time to walf away, before something happens to make me run.
