    For Background, because I think it is important to understand what shaped peoples views, I was raised fundamental Baptist. So obviously modesty and vanity were talked about a lot. So I always had a hard time reconciling vanity with the amount of times in the Bible a woman’s beauty is mentioned. As I got older I also had a hard time reconciling why God made men desire physical beauty and why as we age men find us less beautiful (Fun fact a recent online dating profile study found that men find women most beautiful at age 18 and then continuously write them as less beautiful each year they age).

    Even in my thirties I know women and men who delight in other people that delight in someone losing their attractiveness, so I wouldn’t say that no one else is looking at you. In fact, when I have struggled with my body after children I have thought of those people when I’m embarrassed of gaining weight.
