Y’all, I was SO nervous trying this on again for the first time in years... I remember exactly how I felt when I first tried on this dress — “well it KINDA fits, so I guess I’ll buy it...” Only to realize the next day when I sat down at my cubicle that it did not, in fact, fit AT ALL as the front button snapped and I had to safety pin the entire front of the dress to “keep myself in” for the rest of the day... That was a whole new low for me; I was feeling absolutely defeated 🙍🏻♀️ I remember many tears when I got home that night... Did I change things then??! Nope, I vowed to never wear the dress again instead.
I went through an ENTIRE year of feeling depressed, annoyed at the world, absolutely unhappy... until I finally had had enough and realized that this was not how life would “just have to be from now on...” I’ve had such a hang up about this dress that it’s been locked away for years, and not until just recently did I come up with the nerve to try it on again.
You cannot imagine how surprised I was that the dress not only fit, it’s a whole handful too lose!!! All the FEELS! That’s the best way I can explain the rush of emotions I felt seeing this dress that once brought me so much pain now bring me so much Pride 💪
Friends, please don’t make the same mistake I made... don’t wait years; don’t put yourself through all this pain for nothing!!! There IS a way to be happy, it’s out there 💕 but it’s up to you to go after it.
As always, ya know who’s got your back if you’re looking for that push in the right direction!!
