This is my current Facebook photo.. Can I share this?
When I look at this photo.. I remember a story behind it.
Me on the right, that is how I was actually feeling. I put on some makeup, straightened my hair, and put my gold heart locket on that belonged to my grandmother (we got matching ones for Christmas when I was 6 years old). The photo on the left, I'm smiling. It was a forced smile. A friend and I were meeting for some kinda hangout, I can't remember where or what. All I remember was needing to put my shit together and get out.
I had texted this photo to a girl I was with at the time. I thought she would like it. Instead, I got the 3rd degree of "why are you wearing makeup like that. That's excessive. Who are you actually going to see. Who are you dressing up for. That isn't for yourself obviously" and on and on. The truth? It was for myself. I remember being so knocked down from the shit that was going on behind closed doors that I needed something. That was my something. This photo reminds me of strength, of trying when I wanted to give up. It also tells me to watch who I let enter my life, because even a wolf looks cute in sheeps clothing.
