As I was getting ready for the benefit on Sunday, I was looking at myself in the mirror. And what did I notice? 3 little hairs on my chin.
Seriously? As I plucked the little hairs that plagued my chin, I was thinking to myself about how society views woman as these perfect beings and we aren't supposed to have flaws...and here I was, plucking hair off my chin.
I am part Italian (my maiden name was Manzullo) but aside from a cool last name and a thick head of dark brown hair, I didn't inherit the beautiful traits that people associate with Italian women.
For example, I did NOT inherit olive or brown skin. I am pasty pale. I used to go to the tanner but after I became a nurse, I was way too aware of skin cancer. So, I remain pasty pale. When I try to tan, I burn in patches.
Also, like most Italians, I have an over abundance of hair. (Probably TMI). I love having a thick, full head of hair. However, I also have chin hairs. Above the lip hairs. Hairs on my big toes. And if I didn't pluck or wax my eyebrows, I would likely almost have a unibrow. And if I don't shave my legs I look like Sasquatch.
Are there parts of your body that make you feel insecure?
