    When At Lunch...

    sometimes when i'm out for lunch or coffee with a friend, and go to the bathroom i'm gone for about half an hour.  And when I get back to the table they're like "why were you gone so long" ... and I then have to explain it's because I caught my own reflection...

    I had to quit one of my jobs.

    I realized standing too long would probably give me spider vains and I just can't have that. Not a good look on young legs. Young single... If that even makes sense. I don't want some kid to mess up my body either. Stretch marks , saggy boobs , a stomach bulge. No way Jose!

    I Can Be At Times

    It's not just about liking to see myself or listen to myself talk or enjoying the compliments I'm given (oh, do go on). There are many times when the things that I do are completely useless or even detrimental, but I do them anyway just because, especially because, someone tells...

    I'm totally vain but not to the point

    where I'm arrogant about it. I just enjoy taking pride in myself and the way I look. Why do people shun it so much?

    IM So Mean

    I just discovered how truly vain I really am. Carly Simon could sing about me today.   I have never been vain, actually, I have always thought of myself as less than average or even plain and not much to look at.  If you look at the rest of my experience groups, you...

    I'm Vain But It Doesn't Mean I'm Also Shallow.

    I was a very unattractive child. My own mother often told me how ugly I was. As I grew older, very thin with buck teeth and way too much body hair for a kid, I was teased at school and made to feel less than human because of my looks. Times changed, I developed, I learned about...

    Is It Me?

    Is it because of something that I did or said -- or who I am -- that made my friend not talk to me any more? Or does it have nothing to do with me, and she is just busy. I can't help but feel it must have something to do with me. That is vanity, though, isn't it?

    I Will Get Over This!

    This serious case of vanity started up just a year ago when my father passed away. I keep acting as if everything revolves around me and pulling fits when someone denies something I say about myself. I constantly claim to be "stronger than most women" (yeah right) and...

    It just doesn't become of one to be so wrapped up in their looks. They fade and in the end all that's left is your personality. Let it shine through.
