Then my first boyfriend happened who made me realize I am amazing the way I am. He made it a point to compliment my smile every time we went out. It’s been getting better since then. I’m close to 30 and I couldn’t really care anymore. Now I find it one of my cutest features. I have one misaligned tooth that makes my smile look like I’m missing a tooth. As kids, my parents couldn’t afford to get me braces. I would cover my mouth and laugh as a kid. Got laughed at by a lot of kids at school. Got a lot of mean nicknames.
I used to try to fit in with everyone, I pretended to like sports, or shooter games or whatever the group was into and talking about. Finally, I just embraced the fact that I’m just different enough from “the normal crowd” and I don’t care. I like the obscure Japanese games people in my area haven’t heard about, I like collecting cool looking bottles and glasses and pretending I’m a wizard making potions, I like listening to show tunes, I like Disney movies, I like all those girly alcoholic drinks.
