I know I have discussed beauty more times than my reader would really care for, but this one is on the tip of my heart... and well, my blog is really about my journey..... so bear with me.
I was lately confronted by a concern and caring sista- friend for not caring about my self. She finds it odd that I am such a beautiful and outgoing woman and I don't wear a lot of make up and my clothes are "frumpy"and my shoes are old, weird, and ugly. She was honestly puzzled why I don't wear much jewelery, don't buy fancy face washes, and don't keep my nails neat. She was concerned because she thinks my attitude about this is careless, and I harm myself by neglecting myself. She thinks my attractive personality is harmed by my uncared for appearance.
While the confrontation hurt, I saw her heart. I know she was just concern about me. But the truth is, how do I deal with that? I like certain things about me because that is how I feel comfortable. She thinks comfort has nothing to do with it.
Funny because to me... comfort is attractive. People who are comfortable with who they are, how they feel, and how they look makes me admire them. I am attracted to guys with unkempt hair and old faded teeshirts, not that I don't like to dress up, because there are times that I do, but I think comfort is beautiful. I find it odd that she feels that being"all made up" is beautiful.
So now that she bore her heart to me, it is up to me to find the balance of it all.
