Now to the topic:

Before I knew the definition of insecurity, I had my fair share of the struggle. Growing up, my teeth were my biggest problem. I suffered from numerous cavities and because of my horrible experience with dentists (I got beat by a dentist once because I didn’t like injections), I refused to let my cavities be taken out anymore. In junior high school, I had this deep hole in my bottom tooth and it was disgusting.  It was black, it hurt and it was too shameful for me to associate myself with it. My mom got me some herbal medicine that I would use everyday just to prevent it from stinking. As a result of this, I never wanted to smile, even talking out loud and being the center of attention was a problem (if you know me, you know this was difficult because I just have to talk). I was sad for a long time because of this, so when this tooth finally grew out by itself (because it was a milk tooth), I celebrated. I think that has been the happiest day of my life so far. I felt so free and I remember screaming to my mom and sharing my joy with her. I’m sure it was a relief for her too, no parent wants a child in pain and shame.

Anyway, the point of this story is that everyone struggles with insecurities. Mine might not even be half as bad as what others are going through. Some of you might be dealing with yours right now but remember that, no situation is permanent. This is the reason I smile almost every time now, that was an unhappy time in my life and I’m glad it’s in the past. I’m so happy that I can talk and laugh without having to worry about concealing mouth odour or anything like that.

    1. Eyyy we flat gang! Flat chest, flat butt, we’ve gone through a lot haven’t we? 😭. But we still become sexy in the long run 😭😉. Thanks for sharing babes! Glad modest fashion has helped out


  1. Mine isn’t so bad – post-acne hyperpigmentation. Any pimple that pops out leaves a black spot on my skin that take ages to clear out. Despite trying a lot of products, my face is never completely clear making me insecure about going out with my bare face. I’ve learnt to deal with it but i still struggle as i always let my hair cover some parts of my face and also wear sunnies or big clear glasses whenever i’m going out bare face.
    Surprisingly the spots are few here and there but i’m kind of obsessed with clear skin. Btw, i love your hairstyles in this post.

    1. Hi girl! I definitely relate with you, I struggled with dark spots this summer and these products didn’t even help. Have you tried jojoba oil though? It’s the best oil ever! It has helped me so much. I use it before going to bed every night and my spots are getting brighter.


  2. LOL, this is outside the topic but just look how flat your Tommy is, OMG. And your hair…gorg! I have had and still have so many insecurities but one day at a time, building up my self esteem and self confidence. Not basing it on people or things but on God and my own damn self. Thank you for sharing boo.


  3. What an honest post.

    I’m currently writing about 4 steps to get rid of that insecurity so it’s nice to get some inspiration from other blogs. I really enjoyed reading your experiences and feelings about it. Post well done 🙂

    Keep it up !
