There was certainly a time that my mindset was “when we have enough money I will get a boob job.” I felt like I was supposed to look like everyone else. That socially I wasn’t “acceptable”. That to be feminine I needed a larger chest. That all women, to be considered women need to have large boobs. That if I just had bigger boobs I would feel better about myself, be more attractive, “fit” in…..etc.
I am OK being who I am. I’m just me. Yes I wear makeup. Yes I like clothes and accessories and getting dressed everyday. And yes sometimes I love to sport some fake eyelashes. But at the end of the day all of this get taken off, washed away and I’m just me. My natural self. I’ve never put up a front or never let people see me without makeup. But I prefer to look my best most of the time. And choosing to embrace my small size is exactly that – my choice. I can feel confident about my body without having to alter it this way.
I have a daughter and nieces who are definitely old enough to notice if I made a permanent change to my chest. And I’ve wondered what it would say to them about me and to them about themselves…???
I think there is too much emphasis put on boobs. LOL. There is more to me than boobs. And all the women on the TV shows that have large boobs naturally or on purpose are always dealing with the struggle of saying that exact thing, “there is more to me than boobs. Hey! I’m up here! stop staring at my chest”. I’m not looking for any extra attention that larger boobs would give me. I have a husband so I don’t need or want looks from anyone else. I can still pursue my dreams, goals, work, play and be me with what I have.
For any one person out there struggling with their size – I say embrace what you have and who you are.
And that’s me…..just saying it…..and hopefully giving someone else the courage to love who they are as
