Hi all this is really hard for me to talk about, but I’ve been dealing with really bad teeth for most of my teenage years and up until now as an adult and it’s been a real struggle for me, it’s gotten to the point where I’m too scared to leave my house, and I already deal with really bad depression/anxiety, it’s also very hard for me to eat certain foods because of the fact that my teeth aren’t strong enough and I’m missing some of my top teeth, we should all be able to feel beautiful and that’s all I want to do is feel beautiful and be happy,I want to live a normal adult life, I have never been able to smile for most of my life because I’ve always been so self conscious about my teeth, I want to smile and live a normal adult life, all i’m asking is that you can share this and help spread the word if you can’t donate, thank you for taking the time to listen, i love you all.
Don’t judge me by your european beauty standards, i’m zairian and in Zaire it’s a sign of beauty and wealth.
(Notice the fact that I didn’t say in Africa, because Africa has many different ethnicities with many different traditions and habits, even tho i know that it is found in other cultures, here i’m only talking about a fact true for my culture.)
“A lot of people in my position sort of let the fame go to their heads and I’ve come up with a very clever way of not letting that happen, which is to employ Jake who is a very talented young man and he, um, keeps me grounded.”
want bad teeth representation in a character still shown as pretty.
Not just as in gaps, uneven, etc. (though that’s needed too). When I
was a child, my hygiene was horrible and now my teeth are permanently
yellow and my enamel is so messed up from that and genetics that my
teeth can’t be whitened and I can’t even bring myself to smile in
