As much as I am changing (for the better, I hope) and becoming braver in showing off my "curves", at times, I am still overcome by my insecurities. Negative self-image and voices of past
This made me rethink my dress over and over again, and try on about five different pairs of shoes and about six cover-ups to make me blend in more with the crowd. Looking at these photos, I realize it's not even short, but at that time, it felt like a mini-dress to me. I actually changed to flats, but when I was going down the stairs, my sister insisted I march right back up and wear heels instead. I'm so lucky to have a sister that supports and cheers me whenever I'm regressing back to an insecure doubting Thomas. She pushes me to be better, to look at myself not with eyes that have been tainted by labels of the past, but with kindness and appreciation.
She kept saying, "Why did you change? Bagay naman eh. (It suits you.) Don't be shy!"
I'm so glad I listened to her.
Because to be honest, I am a little proud of myself for strutting my stuff that night and for feeling like I do deserve to be called "sexy" for once.
