To change my past feelings of self-conciousness, and feel better about myelf.
From my teenage years until now, I have struggled with feelings of anxiety regarding my nose. I realize it never was terrible, but I was very self-aware. Whenever I thought about rhinoplasty and discussed it with my friends, everyone would just say, “Oh, its just in your head, I think its fine.” Nobody would understand. Nobody would understand the self-awareness I felt over simple things, such as putting my hair up in a ponytail, wearing a hat, or even crossing the street. Anything that I felt would draw attention to my nose and especially my side profile, I would fixate about and be extremely self-aware. I finally stopped listening to my friends and took control.
