A lesson in self doubt

10 years ago I would have not worn this coat. 


10 years ago, I would have picked out something ''safe'' something that helped me blend into the background, but, for the first time in 10 years this weekend, I started to feel like that again. 

Don't get me wrong, it's not that I hate this coat, in fact, I would go as far as to say it's one of my favourite things I've bought in a very very long time. As soon as it arrived at my doorstep, it was instant love. It was just what I had been looking for. I wanted something different from the Parka or duffle coat I'd usually go for in winter and loved that puffer jackets had come back around again and I absolutely adored the colour. It's just that this weekend I was scared to wear it out just in case it was ''too much''. Which stems from being profusely bullied in school and whenever I wanted to try something new out, it was immediately shut down by my peers. I would be ridiculed and made to feel like an outcast and the weird kid just because I wanted to do or try something else. The more that happened, the more I started to go for safer options instead of the more exciting things I was so desperate to try out but too afraid to. Why I got those twinges again this weekend after so long I have absolutely no idea.

The day after I reminded myself of what makes me happy and that I'd be pretty fricking miserable if I allowed myself to go back to the days where I always picked safe and never fun. So, I dug out my ridiculously oversized acid yellow jumper from own saviour [avoid like the plague, I learnt the hard way] my checkboard pants that I lusted over for so long from Love Too True and my Lazy Oaf Beret I picked up over summer and I fricking loved it. 

Did it all go? Nah, not really. Did I care? Nah, not at all. Did I like what I wore? You bet I fricking did.
