I just wrote a journal entry, but...this is more important :XD:

I've taken a few martial arts classes now, which are really mentally/emotionally helpful, and one of their values is modesty. But I don't have a solid definition of modesty.

People tend to think of modesty as an old-fashioned and puritanical code of conduct, having a little to do with behavior but mostly clothing.

For the clothing thing: I don't think it's bad for shorts to show a lot of your legs because it's just skin, but if it clearly shows the outline of your butt, then that's just gross and obnoxious (same goes for leggings). I think a small cleavage is cute, but a huge one defeats the purpose. I also think shirts and dresses that are just a little backless are more inviting than one that's entirely backless. I think bikinis are fine as long as they're not string bikinis. I see nothing at all wrong with tank tops.

I think modesty has a deeper meaning than just dressing decently, but I don't quite know what it is. I guess it means not being prideful or boastful, like humility. There's nothing wrong with expressing yourself, but sometimes if you're too loud and show yourself off excessively, it can lower other people's self-confidence. I think this is why modesty would be seen as valuable. People tend to see modesty as being a value for females, but I think in this sense it is definitely important for males too.

How do you define modesty?

I'm a dreamer and an artist just like all of you . . .
:iconroselb-5::iconroselb-5::iconroselb-1::iconroselb-2::iconroselb-3::iconroselb-4::iconroselb-5:

I have been drawing since I was six years old. I didn't think much of my drawings, but my classmates were stunned by them. I drew a pair of pink Converse sneakers when I was nine years old, and my mom was so amazed she got me to sign it and made copies of it to everyone she knew. Then she consigned me to a ton of art courses in drawing, painting, and a little of ceramics at Attleboro Art Museum in Rhode Island.
Art is a natural talent and a gift. Sports have different seasons, school ends eventually, but art stays with you forever.
To me, music and art are the most beautiful and compelling forms of self-expression and catharsis. Art is the breath of life in me; it is my passion, my joy, and my sanctuary. I draw and write whenever I feel the pull - I have much more time in the summer, but despite school, workload, and stress, I draw and write in between. I also sometimes devote half a night or a whole night to staying up to draw or write.

I mostly do photography, anime art, fan art, realistic drawings, and literature. I have over 400 art pieces, I am the founder of Ran-maoFC and I update my journal entry every few days to weekly :)
