This habit I need to kick. Covering my mouth and nose, whenever I laugh or smile. I don't like my nose,my teeth I careless about actually. What made me cover my mouth was my nose, and the stares people felt a need to give of my uneven lips+teeth. The opinions folks thought they were implied to be heard. I had enough and began covering my mouth and nose. Because honestly their questions were down right idiotic. "Can you eat in those?" "Your nose..oh my ever though of a nose job?" "Does it hurt to speak?" "Can you speak like that or is there pain?" "Why dont you get them fixed?" "Your lips are uneven..tried a lip injection?" I didn't get my teeth fixed for so long, because my dentist said to wait this long. Y'all opinions aren't necessary, nor is judgement. You don't know someone's life and the things they done. What shocked me the most these were grown adults asking and saying these things towards my face. Of course I was taught to not speak back, because it was rude. Although, I was taught another thing respect needs to be earned. So of course I had quick remarks. "Well I lived this long obviously." "A nose job what for? To cover the stench of your rotten mouth? I think you need your cavities checked.." "I'm speaking aren't I? I wonder if gods heart hurts right now hearing his children speak poorly to one another. Your opinion and question wasn't necessary actually." "Idk are you my dentist?" "My lips never failed me, don't see why I need them fixed." Think the part that irked me the most was how everyone was more excited, than me about these metal things on my teeth. How comments flew in from my own orthodontics and close relatives saying "Wow you'll finally be beautiful and get a man!" "All the boys will fond over you!" "You'll finally smile!" Now that part pissed me off more. Who said I wanted a man? Who said I needed a man? I dont smile because its a beautiful thing, only few can see.
