True Confessions

In less than a week, I will be at my 20th high school reunion. I am normally very secure about my appearance, occupation, activities, etc even though the current circumstances of my life would push most women to neurosis. However, all of sudden I am finding myself obsessing over grooming and appearance. Wondering if I am skinny enough? Whitening my teeth, worrying about breaking a nail (really? Me, worry about my nails?)

These women are like my sisters- that is the nature of what happens in a small girls boarding school, we become family. I am sure there are some who disliked me, always have always will. But the ones who love me, love me for me- always have and always will. They don't care if my nails are perfect or my teeth are white.
I guess this is my public confession that I too am but an insecure girl inside, looking for love and acceptance and approval.

  1. Remember your great legs. Play up the assets you are most proud of, and you will feel more confident! (Though you are, of course, beautiful and such a neat person. But sometimes hearing friends say that doesn't do the trick... in that case, I say, do what makes you feel like you can rock out the 20 year reunion!)
