Unpretty

Some of you need to listen to this song. Listen to the lyrics. How many times has a guy started a line with "you'd be so cute/bad/sexy/better looking if you [insert something that changes me just so he's happy].." Hmmm. Now I know that many of you guys want me to have my real hair down to my ass or buy some.. Or relax my hair. Or lose weight-- but keep my ass. Tone up-- but keep my ass. Boobs too. But I'm not going to change myself for a guy EVER again. What you see is what you get. I'm not going to change myself for YOU. Or anyone. Especially not something superficial. If you don't like my hair, find you someone whose hair is NOT like mine. El fin. Now for your viewing pleasure the musical styling of TLC

Word. I had this dude try to diss me because I guess he felt he had to "validate" his choice to date interacially and preemptively try to provoke me and make me feel bad in case I had a problem with it...it's like nah boo boo, I don't give a damn and I love myself way too much to let what some busted little boy has to say "knock me down a notch". Foo on him for even thinking he was on my radar like that. Anyway, sometimes these men (and women!) think they have to strike out with critical BS lest their own pride be hurt because they feel inferior their own damn selves. But I am who I am and I'm not changing shit to fit any sort of "ideal". It is what it is. Self love all the way. :)
