Insecure about appearance
I don't feel too awful about my appearance when I have a full face of makeup on. But it's so sad that I feel like I need makeup to be confident. Don't get me wrong. I don't look bad with no makeup, but I look like I'm about 15. (I'm 23.) And when I look 15, I feel like nobody takes me seriously. With makeup on I still don't look my age, but I look maybe 18 at least and I'll take that. I seriously am so fed up with this. Once I was lazy and went to the post office to mail something after putting no makeup on, not fixing my hair, and wearing my glasses (usually I wear contacts). The old man working made this rude comment to me like "what's a 12 year old doing at the post office?". I just politely said "I'm 23" and he said "ooooh you look young". I realized it's like a "self-fulfilling prophecy" though. I feel like on days when I don't care enough to put makeup on, I feel insecure about looking young, and as a result, I somehow act younger... Does anyone else deal with this sh**?
