I first had to get glasses when I was 11 years old and I was so embarrassed by them. They were bright teal, big and I tried to wear them as little as possible, but I couldn’t see the board at school without them. Fast forward to now and I have actually grown to like glasses, especially these new ones I got from @eyebuydirect
I wear contacts daily because my eyesight is that bad that I need something all the time. But I am not ashamed of my glasses anymore and now wear them proudly. Who here wears contacts/glasses?? Were you always proud of them? #sponsored ...

We're just sitting in my truck. Distracted by social media and sunsets, and avoiding eye contact when I accidentally ask myself, "Self, how do you want me to love you today?" I thought she would hesitate and buy me some time to recover (laugh, maybe?) but she didn't.
Instead she took off her seat belt, turned to me and said, "Love me out of more than indulgence, ideology, reclamation as rebellion, or revenge. Love me out of something more sustainable than reaction, more progressive than comparison, more authentic than strategy, and more useful than guilt."
I immediately translated my defensiveness into sarcasm, "Since when is guilt not useful?"
She ignored me.
"Stop loving me just because I'm a new trend or a success story or a campaign or a more colorful way to do all the same harm. Stop loving me like a holiday or a hashtag, and stop needing to always see me reflected in someone or something else first in order to love me at all."
"Got it. Anything else?" I ask, fiddling with my phone again, distracted by the anticipation of immediate validation. And when I finally look up from the screen, she's gone and my truck is dark in all the places the light of a phone can't reach.
