This was a real light bulb moment for me and it really made me think about the way I look at myself.
Throughout this whole journey, people have had different ideas about why I would choose to go through such invasive surgery. My family and close friends know about my insecurities in terms of how I look, while others presumed my reasons were based solely on vanity. All of these opinions are absolutely valid, but very few people (even those mentioned) know just how deep and how far back my insecurities go. I'm not writing this post for sympathy - I'm simply recognising it as a part of who I am and working on my self perception.
Anyway, it's just a quick update for now. Feel free to leave me a comment - and if you've had this surgery, how has it affected the way you see yourself?
