Una mujer australiana que utiliza el seudónimo Freelee “The Banana Girl” hizo un cambio rotundo en su estilo de vida: abandonó la ciudad y se mudó al medio de la jungla para experimentar una vida saludable, sin maquillaje y totalmente desnuda.

Hace un año, la mujer viajó con su pareja a la selva tropical sudamericana para cultivar su propia fruta. Contó que hasta el momento ahorró más de 4.000 dólares en depilación, maquillaje y champú.

“Quería inspirarme y sentir algo significativo todos los días”, comenta Freelee, de 37 años, en uno de sus posteos.

It’s not easy to round out the past 1.5 years in a short status update, but I can try. The truth is I’ve faced some of the most difficult and fruitful times of my life. I left an unhealthy situation and felt the heart-crushing betrayal from the one I loved and trusted most. I was totally numb at one point, trying to understand my part in it all. I developed temporary health issues related to deep psychological stress. At the same time this profound strength was awakened within. As dramatic as it sounds, I felt like I was being resusitated and given a second chance at life. I was finally free. I realised it wasn’t really love, it was codependency, and we were both better people apart. During this time I also experienced a joy I didn’t know existed, with my new partner, my surroundings, my life direction. As painful as it’s been,I wouldn’t change a thing about my past. It’s now an important part of who I am, and how I function today. Be grateful for your pain. #gofreeyourself

Freelee pasa la mayoría de su día desnuda, “libre de ropa que restringe”, come frutas y verduras que cuida ella misma, se ducha en las lluvias monzónicas y bebe de riachuelos de la selva.

La australiana publica sus fotos en Instagram y videos en YouTube, en las que aparece desnuda o cubriéndose con ropa hecha de materiales orgánicos como cáscaras de coco.

Lately I go days without looking in the mirror even once, and I find it incredibly freeing. This was definitely not always the case. As a young woman I became obsessed with my reflection. I would spend hours a day analysing and comparing. Was it because I was vain? Because I thought I was too perfect for this world? On the contrary, I saw a face filled with ‘imperfections’. I believed the story I was told by advertisements, that I was born inadequate and in desperate need of enhancement. I saw normal human charateristics as defects to be erased or covered; to be ashamed of. I hated my skin, especially my freckles. My smile was too narrow and my teeth too crooked. My top lip too skinny. Eyes not big enough. My hair too fine. The reality is, I didn’t see the real me in the mirror. I didn’t see the cheeky girl who loved to explore nature for hours and play in the dirt and creeks, instead I saw the ugly lies the beauty industry fed me. I’ve now been many months without makeup, fake lashes, creams, treatments etc and it feels so damn liberating. Remember, you were not born flawed, you were born into a flawed system. You were designed to be wild and free, to get dirty, to love and laugh, to explore and experience this beautiful planet – not to stress over your humanness. Don’t buy the lie$ #gofreeyourself

“¿Que si ahora voy a estar desnuda en cada fotografía? Sí, desnuda en la jungla. Libre de ropa, etiquetas, zapatos, maquillaje y depilación. Simplemente, uno se siente bien”, escribe la mujer bajo las fotos.

Según Daily Mail, la australiana se ha ahorrado unos 4.000 dólares en un año en cosméticos y en procedimientos estéticos como teñido del cabello y pestañas postizas, así como en cuchillas de afeitar.

So how do ya like ma coconuts? ?…I just love seeing my DIY coconut bowl collection growing ?It feels really empowering to make things myself rather than pay others. You might think “Oh I could never learn to do that, I’m just not good at that stuff” and that’s where you are wrong. I grew up without a shred of do-it-yourself experience, I was taught by this consumerist society that it’s better to just buy something rather than attempt to create it yourself. Sure, it may be quicker and easier but where is the personal satisfaction in that? Everytime I use the bowls I feel a sense of purpose and pride. You try, make mistakes (eg. hole in bottom of one bowl) but you learn and become more skilled, confident and powerful each time. Save money and become a stronger, freer woman with each project. ? Remember – If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you, if you are determined to learn, no one can stop you. #gofreeyourself

In my eyes you are successful in life when you have the courage to embrace who you really are, however strange or peculiar that may be. Regardless of whether it fits with societies expectations or cultural norms. Growing up I often said the wrong things, didn’t have the right clothing, or the right look, and was laughed at or excluded for being “a bit weird”. I never felt fully accepted. Over time I learned to keep my “uncool” thoughts to myself and adapt my appearance so others would feel comfortable being around me. This only left me feeling internally suppressed and frustrated, (certainly not free) until one day when I reached my threshold and thought – ahh fuuuck it, this is boring! And this isn’t me! – From then on I decided to just let the TRUE me flow, to be my rawself, to act impulsively, to own that embarrassed look from others and to be the awkward freak I’m born to be. ?The result? Goodbye fake friendships, hello soul mates ☀️#gofreeyourself
