I’m taking part in The Gallery this week by Sticky Fingers.
The prompt is Ugly.
I decided to take part because I thought it would be easy to find a suitable picture.
I know you can’t see my face that clearly but as a child I really didn’t feel confident looks wise. Mainly because I was so little.
I was tiny. I had auburn red hair and wonky teeth. I must have done something bad in a past life.
I was teased at school and supposed friends (the types that make your life hell but you worship for some reason), picked on me and encouraged others to do the same.
I felt ugly.
It wasn’t until I spent 2 very drunken chaotic years prancing about town with my best friend looking for boys at the age of 20 that I found my own skin.
I liked my petit frame. My natural curls were short and bouncy and turned heads. My teeth were pretty straight thanks to a trip to the orthodontist. Life was good.
Three trips to a party holiday island later, and I met my husband who says he fell for me because I was a little, fiery and everything else that comes as part of the package.
So from ugly duckling….not to a swan but just someone happy in their own skin (well maybe not quite as comfortable as I was pre babies!).
