Glasses Saga:Tomorrow marks the beginning of Week 8 of my continuing "Vanity Trial." *refer to previous post Surprisingly, I've found myself fighting off the desire to tell anyone who even glances at me that I'm having eye surgery. As I analysed my intense need to over-share this bit of medical information, I came to one conclusion--I'm a nut job.
Delving further into my psyche, I realized by defending my use of the glasses (I HAD to wear them....gasp) people would know that I know that I know I look unattractive. There would be no one out there thinking, "Someone should tell her those glasses aren't a good look for her since she is out in polite society" if I could help it. I would turn their criticism to concern in an instant! Yes, I know how pathetic that sounds. But dear reader, you would be pleased to know that as time goes by, I am reigning in my insecurities, looking people in the eye, and sparing them my sob story. Progress...it is a good thing.
