Many of us with chronic illness or disability have undergone or were born with physical scars or abnormalities of some kind. Hopefully we have learned not to obsess over this, but to accept and embrace our looks. I have a very large scar on my chest due to major surgery. At first I considered having cosmetic surgery to cover it up, but now I look at it as a badge of honor because without it, I may not be alive today.
Now I’d rather obsess over fashion than my physical appearance. One of my vices is buying shoes. Yes, they have to be comfortable, but there’s no problem finding gorgeous shoes like flats from Kate Spade. Although I’d only wear them a few times a year, Michael Kors boots would do me a world of good too. They’d have me strutting!
Simply put, buying shoes and feeling good about how I dress is a lot cheaper than getting cosmetic surgery. It’s taken time to accept the way my body has changed, but all women’s bodies change as we age. Focus on being positive, building up self-esteem, finding new interests and cultivating personal relationships. And, If looking good includes buying new shoes, go for it. And don’t forget to shop safely online.
