I just came across this photo and it reminded me of a conversation I had with Kurt.
We were watching T.V. and a character said something about wearing a giant sweatshirt because she felt fat. Kurt was all, “Well that doesn’t make any sense — that would make you look bigger, not smaller.” And then I told him I totally got what they were saying because I do the same thing when I’m having bad body image days — I literally try to hide my body. Like, giant sweatpants and an oversized t-shirt or hoodie. I know it doesn’t make me look any “better” but I feel like it’s some kind of cotton smoke screen, like “Don’t pay attention to the insecure girl behind the curtain” kind of thing.
Does anyone else do this? Do you know why you think you do it?
