Would you fix your insecurities?
So I did a little ‘gram poll a few weeks ago talking about cosmetic surgery and it turns out 82% of you would pay for cosmetic surgery to fix your biggest insecurity! I wasn’t that shocked at the result, ’cause I couldn’t have lived with my biggest insecurity forever. I will admit I blew up my insecurity a bit too much in my head, but it was something that really bothered and upset me. Read on to find out what I’ve just spent £1500 on…
The initial embarrassment
I was in two minds about whether I was going to write this post or not. With social media being all about perfection these days, it’s pretty hard as a blogger to highlight your biggest insecurity online. And with me being single and having constant struggs navigating/hating online dating apps (read all about that here!), I didn’t want to broadcast something that would make me feel unattractive. But now, after three weeks and plenty of people not even realising, I thought I might as well share it.
No, I haven’t had a boob job!
No, it’s nothing that major, I’ve paid £1500 to move one of my teeth forward. Yep, you read that right…my biggest insecurity was a tooth! To give you all a bit of context, I had a brace on my top and bottom teeth when I was 13. I then got told to wear my retainers for 6 months and that’ll be treatment done forever. However, my pesky wisdom teeth decided to make an appearance and move a couple of my teeth! It never really bothered me till about a year and a half ago. And then boom, it became my biggest insecurity!
When girls get drunk and talk about boys they love, I used to get upset over the tooth.
You could never see in pictures, my natural fuller lips have definitely become a blessing! And I do think the only person that ever really noticed was myself. But for me, having to spend 9 months consuming a lot of soup (Marks and Spencer’s do an amazing Thai chicken soup), will 100% be worth it in the long run! And as you can see in the picture of me last night, you can’t even tell I’ve even got a brace on.
That one thing everyone says to me
When I was 13, I wasn’t exactly going round snogging everyone! But I can confirm it’s still possible to kiss, although it did feel a bit weird at first! Maybe like an extra tongue? Is that oversharing? But there’s your fact for the day anyway!
Would you get cosmetic surgery if you could afford to fix your insecurities? If not, why not? Please let me know in the comments!
