I was born with a hyper-sensitivity to what other people think of me. Sometimes it is a blessing, most the time it is a curse. However, I feel that I have made STRIDES of improvement in this area lately as I grow into my adulthood. I'd like to share with you a few things that I used to be embarrassed about, and how I feel about them now.
I used to be embarrassed that my mom delivers the mail. Now, I like it because I know she is a hard working, dedicated employee.
I used to be embarrassed that I have 2 webbed toes. Now, I show them off because they make me unique.
I used to be embarrassed that I did not have a wardrobe full of Abercrombie & Fitch clothes. Now, I have no desire to wear clothes that expensive.
I used to be embarrassed that I am from the Mid-West. Now, I LOVE it and am extremely proud of it.
I feel that my embarrassments have matured, and so have I. For instance:
I am embarrassed that my dogs sneak into the neighbor's pool. However, it is something that we are working on, so I can get over it.
I am embarrassed that my dogs poop in the neighbor's yard. However, it is something that we are working on, so I can get over it.
I am embarrassed that I have "love handles". However, starving sucks. I try to work out frequently and it is still a goal of mine to have a "nice" stomach.
I am embarrassed that my now fiance broke up with me a couple years ago. However, it made him realize that (DUH) I am the one for him, and now our relationship is amazing!
I am embarrassed that we live with my parents. However, someday I know I will miss being able to see them everyday.
I am embarrassed that our engagement will end up being 2 years and 2 months long! However, we are working hard for our wedding and nothing is being handed to us. I think we will be stronger and happier because of that.
Anyone brave enough to tell me what you are embarrassed about? ;)
