Now, this has taken me some time to write and balls to post – it’s more an open post to myself and anyone who has a big nose or a ‘flaw’ you think you have – you’ll know who you are.
Since my pre-teens my nose has always been a thing – it went perfectly alongside my ears that stick out! Well throughout my teenage years I grew into my ears, and whilst they still stuck out, they weren’t ‘that‘ distracting.
My nose, however, grew with me. Oh, it also gained a sharp bone in the middle that adds a little speed bump to the runway!
Now I won’t sit and say that my big nose is beautiful. I haven’t got there yet and maybe I never will – I do feel self-conscious from time to time if the angle in a photo is wrong (like the one above!!). I’ve even edited it in the past to make it smaller and remove my bump!
Through all this, I’m only making the problem in my head worse.. because whilst I was getting likes on my photo – I was concerned about somebody actually seeing me in person. (This is the same about my acne).
I’m not the only one who edits photos to remove blemishes sure, but to change your nose? What am I doing?
This has all stemmed because a modelling agency got back to me and wants me to ring and discuss work (yes, that’s random and mad I kno. It probably won’t happen but I’m deffo doing a post on it, either way, to let you know what happens bad or not- stay tuned!)
All my flaws have come to surface. Whilst I’ve accepted my acne (well aware they probs won’t) – my nose is a struggle.
Despite all of this and a huge pep talk from my sister, I’m going to wear this feature proudly. I’ve got it from my dad and he rocks his – so I’m bloody rocking mine.
To be honest, no one has ever mentioned anything that bad about my nose. Only one comment from someone who asked if I’d broken my nose before (that’s the bump talking I’m telling ya!).
From the front you can’t really tell that my nose is that big – it’s fairly wide but I have big round eyes and a massive smile that match. It’s only from the side you realise WHOAAA – even I still find it odd!
I don’t edit my nose in photos anymore, I don’t have any apps that can do so either as this was all done when I edited on my computer (effort). I still get the same interaction with it and I still get compliments either way – which is actually a really lovely for me to hear and makes the whole thing a little easier to accept!
So thank you to my dad for blessing me with this very definitive feature.
I will do my best to wear it with pride! I actually like that my features aren’t all perfect and I’m enjoying my ears a lot more these days too!
I guess secretly I am a little mouse with a long nose and big ears!
Take some time to appreciate your insecurities, because they’re often the things that part you from the sea of boring!
Thank you for reading friends!
Keep on lovin’ yourself!
