I put on pink eyeshadow
Wednesday, April 18, 2018
When I was more comfortable in my skin, I was bold and daring. I wore polka dot or leopard print dresses. I wore pink, purple and other fashion eyeshadow shades that made my green eyes pop. I wore crazy colorful high heels and fun, wild earrings. I had a big smile and a loud unashamed laugh.
As I grew more uncomfortable in my own body, I began opting for “flattering” clothes in shades of black and gray. I traded my bright eyeshadows for muted neutral browns. I stopped accessorizing. I started to lose sense of myself and hid myself, not wanting to draw attention.
My weight loss has hit a plateau but I’m feeling more comfortable and confident in my skin every day. I’m happier and I’m beginning to feel more like me; more like the me who was bold and unafraid to like what I liked and be my true self.
This week, I put on pink eyeshadow and it felt good.
