“I didn’t ‘lose’ my belief in ‘Shoes’ just like I didn’t lose my belief in Santa either. I haven’t lost anything!
“I gained freedom from a socially imposed belief system; from mind control, from guilt, shame and fear. I win!” ~ Me
For me the greatest challenge to a ‘barefoot lifestyle’ wasn’t physical, but emotional/psychological.
Freeing my mind enough from social expectations and stigma to be able to understand the concept that feet can function perfectly well, in fact better, without shoes in normal life.
