I decided many years ago, that I am me...nothing can change that. So there is no point in worrying about what I could like...if only. It is just a waste of my time. :)
I'm not happy w/ my reflection, but I also don't fret over it too much. It is what it is. God made us as he saw fit.
No. I am not happy. People like the way I look. They seem to think I'm beautiful and all that. I've often been angry to just be seen as a face or body in the past but now I'm losing it all. I wanted my mind noticed rather than my outer looks.
I've rarely been happy. I thought sometimes looked good but rarely. Now I'm horrified that I'm losing what looks I had. Though I didn't want my looks to be my identity, people have made it so and I'm missing them as I lose the war here. LOL
I've always felt that I didn't look like anyone in the family. But now that she went blonde after Daddy died, I'm horrified that I look like my very dysfunctional mother, 20 years ago. Now, I'm even less happy when I look in the mirror. I'm trying to make peace with it but I'm not there yet. I try to concentrate on what I like or what I can change. I like my hair. I like my eyes. My nose is okay but my face which has always been Germanic broad is now way too broad.
I refuse to do botox or plastic surgery. I'm determined to age gratefully and gracefully even if it KILLS me. LOL
not at all!!
Most of the time:)
