Big Nose...learning To Accept It
Well...I've always had a big nose. It's plain to see and perfectly explainable, as both of my folks have one, also. Of course, during those tender years of teenage angst, a big nose for a young lady is no laughing matter. As a young teenager, I was told several times that I had a large nose. It hurt my feelings greatly, because I felt having a big nose made me ugly. I obsessed over my schnoz, staring in the mirror for hours, using hand-held mirrors to look at the profile I so hated. I suppose I should also mention the fact that I greatly fractured my nose during junior high school, which did give it a hump (and also breathing problems). This hump has been the major qualm with my nose. I don't look like a witch or anything..nothing so awful as that, but my profile is something I've hated ever since the sports injury that altered my appearance. A big nose with a hump. Sounds attractive, eh? Ha!
But.....I'm learning to deal with it better now. In fact, I've been told that my nose fits my long face very well and that it looks fine. I wear glasses, as I have been told they look really great on me..and I somehow feel more confident wearing them. (Actually, I think it is a psychological thing, as the glasses make me feel like I'm "hiding" my nose..) Even though I have a large nose with a hump (although when I can afford it, I'm gonna get my nose restored back to how it was before my injury), I have been told that I'm very pretty- by many people. I've had very attractive boyfriends and been liked by some extremely attractive guys, as well. Girls have envied me and told me I was gorgeous...and I feel alright about it! I know I'm fine just the way I am (minus the breathing problems). I work the big nose and look pretty fabulous the entire time! I have an amazing figure..extremely similar to that of the VS model Candice Swanepoel, big, beautiful blue eyes, and a super smile! I have natural-highlights in my blonde hair, AND I have a big nose. Who cares? Why obsess over something negative when I have many positive attributes? That's what I have to say to all of the beautiful girls out there with big noses! Just because you have a big nose (and there's no reason to deny your nose), it doesn't mean you're ugly..in fact, it may just make you look uniquely beautiful!!
