When I was young, I don't care about how I look. As long as I get dressed and have my slippers on, everything is solved. I can go anywhere, wherever I want. Well if I have money too. I am sure we experience the stage wherein we don't care about how we look and even how we smell. We also don't mind if we took a bath during the day. What we are after of is to go away and have fun playing with friends. Let's call it 'the yagit stage'.
Yagit in our dialect means you look awful for not being able to take care of yourself. Alright. We have been through that 'yagit stage' where we don't know how to take care of ourselves. Thus, we look not as appealing as we are today. We've been also in this stage wherein we just simply wipe away the fluid from our nose using our bare hands and there's a mark left in cheeks. Geezz! I remember my mom found it so hard to wipe especially when it dries. Regardless, those are the good old days.
After that stage, we will enter the next one which is the 'glow-up stage'. Of course. We should not look awful forever. As we grow up, we eventually learn how to take care of ourselves. From the way we dress, the way we carry ourselves and the way we speak. We also learn the habit of taking a bath everyday. I am proud to say that I take a bath even if it's raining because I feel so alive after taking a bath. As time goes by, I think I was in my first year in college that I learn how to make myself look good. I am not sure though if I really turned out to be one. Lol. But I know myself I did everything especially making my skin fairer. 😂 Call it too girly but I really did that. I used to let my mom bought kojic soap and moisturizing lotion in order for my skin to look a little bit nice. I also limit my exposure to the sun's heat that's why I brought umbrella with me.
In this stage, I also learned how to dress properly in every occasion. Unlike before that I wear jeans and rubber shoes on a beach. Yikes! It's not that I am too self-conscious. I just want to make sure that I take care of myself properly. And after this stage, we can see the difference in ourselves before and after.
When it comes to physical aspects, you already know a part of me since I already mentioned the rest. Apart from that, I was too skinny before even if I eat a lot. I do have my vitamins too and I slept early. But nothing happened. No body structure improvement. I can't be too sad about it so I just let it go and enjoyed my life. Because of how I look, my classmates teased me. I was a kid then so I got hurt and reported those nasty kids to my mom. My mom would just tell me to not mind them but how can I do it when I see them in school everyday. But as time goes on, I learned how to respond to criticisms. Instead of getting mad, I acted like I am not hurt so I just smiled and go with it. It's really effective because my classmates seldom made fun of me after that. I guess they realized that I am not affected anymore and they would just waste their time. As a result, they find someone else to tease with.
After those moments of rediscovering myself, I learned how to be better. My attitude glowed up too and my mindset has widen. I think this is the most important among all. Looks are nothing when you don't have the right attitude. But there are times when my attitude before comes back. That's the time when I need to sneak out and tease my little brother. I don't know but there are really times that I want to go back to being a kid in such a way that my mom would not spank me.
The above photos somehow shows that I am not skinny as the first one. During that time, I learned how to sleep early and I just sneaked out from house sometimes unlike before that it's almost every night. I know I look like an old man there having the problem of nothing to eat at home. But believe me, I am genuinely happy that time.
So those are just glimpses of me before. I like to tell the rest but I don't want to make you feel sleepy. Lol.
Today, I am pretty sure I am better. Still the same me but with improved mindset and attitude. If I were to be a milk, I am now fortified. My experiences before made me better. Some of my childish attitudes were gone but there are still few remain and those are when I want to get rid of my little brother. Oh, I wish I can get over with this too.
This quarantine days made me look better, I guess because I seldom go out and if I will be out, it will be during evening. Well it's advised to stay home these days but not going out for too long can drive me crazy.
The above photo is my recent pic. I don't know if you will find any glow up in there. But I, myself consider that there's really a difference. I am not as skinny as before and I looked clean today than before. 😂 That's it. I'm going to leave the rest to you and let you do the talking.
