This is a post I never exactly thought I’d be writing however I’m extremely excited to be taking this huge step in my life. I’ve teamed up with Dr. George H Pope of Orlando Plastic Surgery Center to have some work done this Tuesday. I know what you are thinking, “She’s getting boobs!” but actually, my boobs are pretty awesome as is. I’m actually getting face work done. Rhinoplasty and liposuction.
I know that a lot of people have strong opinions on plastic surgery and I respect everyones right to their opinion. I however feel that people should do everything in their power to do what makes them happy. When you live every day of your life uncomfortable with a feature, especially one smack in the middle of your face, you can become really fixated on making a change. I’ve wanted a nose job since I was a young girl. I’ve been teased about my nose since 3rd grade. I’ve always felt I had a masculine face and that’s a horrible feeling for a girl.
Yes, we should be happy with who we are. If only it were that easy. Will I teach my kids to be happy with who they are? Absolutely. If they aren’t is it something we will talk about and work through? Absolutely, but I don’t agree with cosmetic surgery until adulthood. But I do believe that for all stages of life self confidence and self esteem are tricky things. They should come naturally but it’s not always that easy and as I mentioned before, it’s up to us to make the decision for ourselves that will bring us joy.
I’ll be blogging and vlogging about my journey starting tomorrow so please keep an eye on MySentimentExactLee.
