I’m 17, and criticism is terrible in my high school. I felt completely worthless this year without my makeup, and I felt like the only way to get friends, or even attention, was through false beauty. Then, in December, I went to Harper’s Ferry.
    His name is Jeremy and he was playing a soldier at Harper’s Ferry. He asked me to dance, after I was dressed in my “goth zone”. I was just having a rough day, so I was in dark makeup, dark clothes and my hair was a mess. My makeup had ran really bad because literally 5 minutes before he saw me, or even asked me to dance, I had been crying from seeing a chorus that reminded me of the one I was in before I moved. I went to the bathroom and wiped all my makeup off, trying to get the mascara off my face that was in streams. The only thing I had left was plain old me, in clothes that did NOT express the true, normally happy, me….but yet, he still picked ME out of the entire tent. He still danced with ME out of everyone there. And to this day we’re still talking daily, even though he’s in Maryland and I’m in West Virginia. He always tells me that I am beautiful; and never has he ever used the word hot, which makes me feel like I am so full of worth. Since then, I have realized that I don’t need to wear makeup to impress anyone because the people that are true, or will be with you for your true self, are going to see you are your worst days and your best days. And they will love you either way because they care for you on the inside and not just your outer appearance 😀
