With the weather a little warmer, I bravely ventured out to buy a brand new pair of short shorts. They fit, they do the job of keeping my legs cool, but are decidedly not modest.
I put them on, barely able to continue wearing them for an hour. Is this a neshoma thing? Or a reluctance to change to something unfamiliar? I want to be comfortable in secular society, but there are things that keep pulling me back to a more frum interpretation of Yiddishkeit. It comes, at least I think, at the expense of my sanity and progress.
What do you think? Frum throwback or something I just need to get over?
