I had a rough appearance during my childhood because I pretty much started puberty when I pop out from the womb!
Here I was 7 years old with no eyebrows and a huge forehead (those are both staying with me forever) looking like I needed to take a shit.
I was 9 years old in this picture and I COULDN’T SMILE even when I tried hard. My sister tells me that I looked like a gremlin which was true lol (now you know why I hated smiling in the picture above)
During the summer of 2009, I was 10 and hitting the ‘really awkward almost done with puberty’ look.
AND THE FINALE, I am now 15 and finished with puberty!
you were sitting on the couch next to your boyfriend of three years michael. the other boys were also at your place with their girlfriends, on there phones.
suddenly, michael was look through his camera roll reminiscing old pictures of the two of you.
"aw! that's like two years old, we're so cute." you said remembering the picture.
"well, you are at least, i look hideous. my hair is a mess, my piercing is ugly. ew god look at the burn on my face. it's disgusting."
you groaned in annoyance at your boyfriend. you were sick and tired of him talking himself down.
in anger, you got off the couch, stomping your way to your room, michael quickly stopping you in the hallway. this caught everyone's attention.
"y/n, what's wrong?" he asked.
"damnit michael!" you started.
" for once, just once could you stop talking bad about yourself? it makes me sick." you spat.
"no buts michael. i love you-" you began.
"-and not just because you're a talented guitarist who plays in a popular band. i love you because you're different. i love you because you dye your hair wacky colors, but only YOU can make it work. i love you because you have a "too the moon" tattoo. i love you because your skin is pale. i love that the scar, burn marks, and piercings on your face compliment you and make you look charming. i love you because you have a smile that can make my day no matter how im feeling, and a contagious laugh that makes my heart skip a beat, and makes butterflies in my stomach."
"i love the little things too, like when you poke my back dimples or when you cuddle me while we watch movies. and your cute bracelets that you always wear-." you paused, then sighed calming yourself down.
"-and every time you give yourself putdowns, it breaks my heart because i just want you to love yourself and see yourself the way I do."
you let a tear slip down your face. but not letting a sob come in front of your friends.
after taking in everything that you said, michael looked at you with that smile.
"y/n, for you i'll do my best i promise."
you hugged each other for what felt like forever.
michael then whispered in your ear;
"i love you too y/n, and as soon as everyone is gone, i'll show you."
everyone aww'd at your outburst.
true to his word, when everyone went home, michael showed you how much he really loved you.
