A Few Stand-Out Comments from This Month
- GC at Calm.Healthy.Sexy.: “Women are very quick to ignore their own needs, especially if they perceive those needs as ‘frills.’”
- Lady of Quality: “I say dump anything that doesn’t look fantastic on you, for starters, not matter what you paid for it. And vow to buy only super flattering things in future.”
- Philosophotarian: “Exercise does feel like some of my best self-care. I’m at the darkest end of the dissertation tunnel, and it sometimes I feel absolutely ruled by anxiety. When I exercise regularly, other things fall into place too (usually), like cooking real meals, tidying up, dressing nicely, etc.”
I was also excited about how many of my friends and co-workers noticed all the hard work I’ve been putting into my self-improvement project. When it comes to personal appearance, people notice when you’re making an effort.
