I find myself constantly distracted, worrying about what other people think of me. I honestly spend time worrying about it each day. Wondering what they think of the way I look, the things I say, what I do. I find it shapes me in so many ways, which makes me sad sometimes.
That's why I never leave the house without make up! After all...what would people think if they saw me with my hair in a pony-tail, in the ratty old t-shirt that I often wear around the house? What if they find out that I dropped out of college, and they judge me for it? Will they think I'm dumb? And you know...they didn't laugh very hard after that joke I told.... I bet they are thinking how I talk too much....
Am I the only one that's distracted?
Sometimes I wonder if it's low self esteem...or just the opposite? Maybe I'm SO obsessed with myself that I think that everyone else really puts that much thought into what I'm wearing, what I'm saying, or what I'm doing.
Either way.... I cherish those moments when I can strip off the make up, strip off the personality, and just let go. Just be me.
Because really.... that's enough.
