I have been obsessing over everyone wearing high-top sneakers for years now. I’ve yet to pull the trigger on them for one reason only. I felt stupid in them. I have short legs and that always makes me feel like I’m cutting them off. Making them appear even shorter than they even are. But you know what? Sometimes you just have to wear things because you just love them. Also, high-waisted shorts help to make your legs look longer, those are just facts.
What’s Something You’ve Been Hesitant To Wear
In all honesty, I actually have bought these shoes once before. And when I put them on when they arrived, I just felt so silly. I remember having so much self doubt and negative comments towards myself when they were on me. Usually, I can put something on and if I don’t like it, I just don’t like it. I think because I loved these so much on everyone, I felt really bummed that they just didn’t feel right on me. And if only I had skinnier legs maybe they’d work. And how dare I not work to have skinnier legs.
let the spiraling begin
I don’t usually think this way, I mean yes it happens. We all have had those spiraling feelings in a dressing room when things aren’t fitting. We all have our insecurities. Mine are usually related to two things, my short ass legs that I legit can not change but I imagine if they were skinnier I’d look better in more things. And my stomach not being perfectly flat and toned.
These are just insecurities we all have and everyone is different. And it’s usually those really ingrained insecurities that you just can’t shake. Where nothing you can say to yourself or someone can say to you that will even make it feel better, right? I have friends with insecurities I don’t understand because they aren’t uniquely mine. They’re uniquely theirs, and theirs only. And all we can do is listen. I really don’t think there’s anything you can say to make it better.
So finally, I just said, fuck it. I want them. I think they’re cute on everyone else so why not. This is your reminder to buy the things, wear the things, do the things that make you feel a little insecure. Because guess what, I felt cute in them finally. It took some time. It took seeing some photos of me loving them. And it took people complimenting my outfit when I wore them with this jumpsuit that they loved my shoes. Insecurities are wild, aren’t they?
