So, I pierced my nose. Well, I didn't pierce it. Some guy at Spider Bite did it. (nice name, huh?)
I have wanted to do it for years, but never really had the courage. Plus, I don't exactly have the best history with piercings.
Anyway, I wanted to get my nose pierced. I thought about it for a while. After about 2 days of mulling it over, I decided to do it.
I thought about all the people in my life...what would they think? Would they care? Would they think less of me? Would I be disappointing people?
I HATE to disappoint people. I fear disappointing people.
I thought so much about it, I made myself sick. I knew there were going to be people who thought less of me.
Nose piercings have a stigma.
I have lived so much of my life caring about what other people think, and it's honestly so exhausting. My piercing is NOT to make a statement! I don't want it to be that at all! I did it solely based on my decision to stop caring so much about people judging me and because I wanted to do it.
Just because I have a hole and stud in my nose, does not mean I now represent the stigma that is represented with the piercing. I know my heart, and chances are, if you know me well enough, you know my heart, too.
Now, if I go out tomorrow and get my tongue done and a tattoo all the way down my arm, you might want to be concerned about me.
Basically because I have NO tolerance for pain....I'd have to go over the deep end to do anything more extreme!
