dressing room deductions


I stand in the small dressing room, my eyes surveying the clingy cotton
subconsciously analyzing every millimeter of my torso.

Third dressing room of the day, and the walls begin to choke me.
I'd been happy with nothing.

It all looked bad.
on me.
But not on the hanger.

It took a full 5.789 seconds to deduct 437 negative things about
the shirt
my 'bingo wings'
abs
hair
my life.

So I hung those two cotton shirts up on their plastic hangers
with full knowledge that feelings lie.
thoughts lie.
the mirror lies.

And I grabbed my purse and got out of there.

Today wasn't a great day to be adventurous.
And I'm okay with that.

I'm okay as long as I know that
feelings can be liars.
thoughts can be liars.
And the mirror can be a liar.

  3. I'm not sure why I didn't see this before, but wow. Every time I go shopping ever. But you're a beautiful, awesome person so next time just kick that mirror and laugh at it's face when it's shattered all around you. That is bound to make you feel better, and it can act as a metaphor to your lying feelings and thoughts and then you can run away happy, but run fast because the store workers probably aren't too happy.
