i don't feel good about my body. bumps,lumps,oddities and all. nevertheless a girl gotta get herself up and look at the positive things to go with the day,week,month, year. i freaking hate that i have darker underarms due to some chemical reaction in my teenage. it brings down a lot of confidence. i hate that most dresses have minimal coverage to underarms. i've let of so many wonderful tops,gowns and stuff just for that reason. i've had my cousins,beauticians and classmates tease/berate about them. today , ive gone to this new aesthetician to get them waxed, who made small talk and then asked me about the pigmentation. i've told her about the chemical stuff to which she smiled and said "we were idiots back then, using random stuff on ourselves because our mates told us to" i was amazed coz that's the first time ever i heard this kinda answer! she proceeded to show me her dark underarms. then told me "i know you'd feel a lil less confident about it but hey,it's our body, we gotta love it!" i've never ever felt better in my entire life about them until now. it's like i'm coming to terms with it. god bless that lady ! i know it's a very very miniscule worry in the big picture but she gave me that lil boost of confidence which i needed. note: i'm critical to boot at myself, all the other ladies are gorgeous! <3

thank you for sharing that! it's really important that people understand that most of us don't feel comfortable with our bodies at all. also, i really appreciate the way that lady resorted to her own insecurities to make you feel more comfortable about yourself. a big shout-out to her!

i know right! thank you for responding :) it sucks to have people who make feel like hiding my body and skin. i dunno why people have to point out obvious stuff to others, especially in a social setting. to ease their own inferiority complex? to bully? idk. i know it isn't a pleasant sighting, but i just wanna be at peace without overanalysing everything about my body.

you're welcome! in this kind of situations, there's a quote that i very much appreciate. "if they can't fix it in 10 seconds, don't point it out". sometimes people are just dumb, sometimes they wanna be mean. ignoring isn't easy, at all, but it's the kind of treatment they deserve.

not my quote, i'm not taking any credit. it's probably one of those that just exist without anyone knowing the source. nevertheless, it's a great one. congrats on your big achievement! i understand how though that must have been for you. you rock!
