May your coffee be as strong as your brow game✨
I’ve actually had a love-hate relationship with my eyebrows starting in the 3rd grade when I got bullied for having a bushy unibrow. I ran off the bus crying to my mom and we instantly went to a salon to take care of the problem.
I sat down in the chair, ready to bare the pain of beauty, when my mom stopped the waxing lady from giving me the pencil thin look I desired. Through my tears I yelled, “WHY WON’T YOU LET ME BE PRETTY?!” 😢
It wasn’t until a few years ago that I became grateful for my mom speaking up. Thicker brows became “in” and I started to get different types of stares — compliments even!
Moral of the story: no matter what others say about you now — you may look different, sound different, think different, or have different dreams — don’t let others make you doubt yourself because someday they’ll envy you for it...and may even ask you how to perfect their brow game.
What’s one thing you’ve learned to love about yourself over time? Tell me below!
