i think freckles, stretch marks, tattoos, bruises, birthmarks and scars are probably the coolest thing, you started with almost a blank canvas and look at u now, all this evidence that you’ve lived and the sun has shone on you and you’ve grown and maybe tripped up a few times and liked an image so much u made it a permanent part of u!! beautiful!!!
One Halloween my sister stayed home to pass out candy and she told each kid they could take one piece and leave or sing and dance and take a handful. So some did things like twinkle twinkle little star and one or two did a weird little jig thing
and then this one kid went through the entire Bohemian Rhapsody, word-perfect and she just tipped the entire bowl of candy into his bag and locked the door.
I spend a lot of time in front of my mirror lately. It’s not because I’m vain, and think that my reflection is too gorgeous that i have to stop and stare; it’s quite the opposite. I will sit in front of the mirror and pick out every single one of my flaws…. I tear away at my self esteem, telling myself I’m not good enough, that I’m not pretty, that no one could ever love me, that I’m fat. I don’t know why I do it to myself; maybe it’s because these are all things I have heard from others, or things that society has shown me and I let it dig at me until I finally believed it to be true. Don’t get me wrong I have days when I feel like I look decent enough maybe even pretty at times, but here lately my confidence is shaky and I spend a lot more time crying in front of the mirror than I should. No I’m not digging for compliments I just needed to vent.
So I was in Walmart today looking at the $5 movie bin, when this guy walks up. I could see him looking at me from the corner of my eye so I looked up at him and smiled. He smiled back then asked if it hurt, then pointed at my ear(which if you don’t know are stretched to a 00g). I replied with a yes. Then he gave me the creepiest smile ever and said “I bet you like pain don’t you?” I gave him a weird look and he was like “yea you like that freaky shit..I can tell. You wanna come back to my place?” All the while I’m thinking to myself…Is this guy serious? I mean yeah he was attractive but my god that is a terrible pick up line. So I tell him sorry I’m not interested, then he proceeded to put his hand on my waist to try and pull me closer. Luckily one of the male employees that was working the register in the electronics center took notice and casually walked over took my hand kissed me on the cheek and said “hey babe is everything ok?” I shook my head in reply moving away from the other guy who shrugged and walked away. I thanked the employee for the help. He smiled and said “sorry about the kiss, just thought it might make it a little more convincing” I smiled and told him it was alright and thanked him again…unfortunately he had to get back to work and I had to go, but I thought it was a tumblr worthy story :) Sorry it’s such a long paragraph 😛
