(takes deep breath)
I told the therapist I went. She had the same WTF look expression on her face too.
Therapist: "If a plastic surgeon said that to you then what does that tell you then about your nose?"
As for the naysayers, I told a couple folks about it and they think I'm nutty. My friend Kim says that I have a Nubian nose and I should be proud of that, and she asked why am I trying to look like the Europeans (white folk). Girl...I don't have to prove my Nubian-ness to anyone with my nose! My complexion and my lips represents my Nubianism plenty enough. She knows I ain't listening to her and that Nubian shyt so that's that. I'm not trying to get a skinny nose, just a slimmer one. I think I will just keep my mouth shut about it from this point on though. Dayum. Now I see why people don't tell others that they want to change something because they look at you crazy, criticize you, and say even meaner things to you to make you feel worse. So no more discussions. With anybody.
So there. I put it out there. It's kinda scary too, but then liberating at the same time. I am really exposing something that has been buried so deep inside me for all of these years, but I consider it the first step to being comfortable with whatever decision I choose to make down the road. I mean in reality there is probably nothing really wrong with my nose, but I just think it can look better that's all. And what's wrong with wanting to look better? Nothing if you ask me.
I only get one life, so why not be happy?
