Do you think you look better now than when you was 17?

I was looking at an old photo album and I was like "damn, I look ten times better now!". I guess that's what kids, bills, and a man does to ya.

  • HaHaHa! I agree, I feel the same way. I used to be such a mess and nobody told me! But really, I think as we age we become more mature in our style and more comfortable with who we are.

  • lol yes! At 17 I was still a tomboy and had NO sense of style. Now my 9 year old daughter makes sure I wear clothes that are in style (I'm sure thats more so I don't embarass her at school tho lol) and that my hair isn't stuck in another decade. And my husband has a great sense of style which helps too. He's begged me not to go clothes shopping without him. He's actually a better shopping buddy than some of my girl friends.

  • I feel a lot better about myself now, I was very insecure then. So I think that is why I think I look better now.

    I also have a lot more confidence now than I did then, I was soooo insecure. When you have people that love you and that you love it changes the way you feel about yourself.

  • Ya, but I was pretty insecure as a teen. As I grew up and started becoming responsible for myself I gained a lot more confidence.
