I was having a panic attack and feeling sorry for myself last night. I couldn't sleep, so I logged on to a Kik group that I belong to and chatted with the folks there. We have a rule that if you say "lol" you have to post a selfie. I'm always very careful not to do so because I feel that people's expectation of what I look like will be crushed when they see the real me.
I was tired though and made the mistake. So, I did a selfie. And I waited....
"You're so pretty, Laura!" they said. And I cried.
I've never been pretty before and it felt amazing!!!!
