I know I’m plain. I’m very aware I have no outstanding visual attributes. I stand out only in my ordinariness. Sometimes even my friends will pass me without noticing me. I suppose I could try harder to enhance my appearance; maybe a little eye shadow, although it doesn’t seem to adhere well to plastic.
I just don’t think it’s honest to pretend to be something I’m not. Still, we are social animals. Everyone needs friends. Maybe if I worked out people would like me more. A svelte body is everyone’s dream. Beauty is symmetry, slimness, fitness, healthy skin, good muscle tone. But, is this really me. Better to just try and fit in as who I am. I will seek out friends who feel good about themselves; who aren’t afraid of being who they are.
