What is pretty?
Have you ever given it much thought? I don’t want you to give me the societal expectation of pretty.
What is pretty to you? Think about it.
I had to think about this tonight while I sat on my therapist’s couch and told the story of my interaction with the Talbots salesgirl on Saturday. One of the things I left out of my story about my victorious trip there Saturday was this: while we were conversing about our respective struggles with our weight and what we had each done to fight them, she said to me, “You’re so pretty.” I thanked her and our conversation continued.
