self esteem

It’s high right now, lemme tell ya. Coworker, upon seeing my wedding album:

CW: This isn’t you.
SK: It is.
CW: No it isn’t.
SK: I know, because I’m fatter there, right?
CW: No, you look so much better there!
SK: No, I’m fatter there.
CW: No, you look so pretty. So girly!
SK: Too girly.
CW: It’s ok to say this, because I’m saying that you are pretty.
SK: That’s like saying I’m uglier now.
CW: Oh, that’s not what I mean. You look just as much beautiful now.

And the thing is, she doesn’t mean any of it to insult me. It’s how she is, just says exactly what’s on her mind. Always. She’s still one of my favorite people. I think it’s a cultural thing.

  1. Well, I don’t know what you looked like then; I think you’re just lovely right now.

  2. It sounds to me like someone wandered into the “Does this dress make me look fat” mine-field where there is no right answer, only wrong ones.

  3. I think you are right Walter. I just say you are beautiful always sarahk, because it is true.

  4. Sounds like someone else we know, maybe a little nicer, though! hehe
