I myself could never imagine going under the knife for comestic surgery either. Our society is very appearance-focused and sometimes it's hard to fight against its often unrealistic expectations/ideals.
Despite this, I've found a lot of peace in self-acceptance and try to avoid comparing myself to others, especially online.
I agree that being attractive is better than just being pretty because it's more about the energy you give off and how people perceive you.
And that's awesome that you got that compliment about looking sharp! 😎
Great piece. I enjoyed reading this!
