Even though it's been years., I'm still so embarrassed

My mother's father and mother, were both from Scotland. Generations and generations, only married other Scots. My mother's siblings included.

All of them, all my cousins, ECT, tiny framed people, skinny.

My mother married my father, a Greek man, he was first generation Greek to American.

I am the only person in my family that is not tiny. I'm tall with a thick hour glass figure.

When I was a teen, my aunt too me shopping. She made me try on a dress that I wasn't crazy about. It had buttons all the way in the front from top to bottom. She gave me the size she thought I would be.

I tried it on and every, single, botton popped off! Hit the floor and rolled away.

I was so upset and embarrassed and to this day, even more conscious about my body.

What did you do after that happened? What did she say about it?

I laughed nervously. My aunt said "well they don't have a bigger size" (I was a size 10) and I cried.

That dress was insanely poorly made if every single button popped off at the same time. Like horrendously.

But really, you need to let it go. There’s no reason to still be embarrassed decades later. Let it go.

I try. I remember trying to hold on to things like, my family had to slather on sunblock and they burned and I always tanned. Then I would feel petty for putting them down in my mind. Lol

No, not because she was uncaring. Just very stoic.
