If technology or cosmetics could conceal my inner phantoms, I could walk the world a less weary woman; a woman without worries.
People fear growing old and some even get surgery to render the signs of aging invisible. For them, smooth skin absent wrinkles makes them happier. Me, I fear growing old and wearing the wrong lines on my face. I don't want my skin to crumple into a collection of lines that developed from constant worrying. Skin creases with age and experience and I don't want anxiety to extinguish my opportunity to experience the world.
Photoshop can't fix this; nor can surgery or makeup, and even if they could,they'd really just create temporary solutions. Wash off the makeup, the skin remains. Imperfections make people unique. I want to embrace my unique attributes instead of hiding them. My personality should not have to hibernate because this season, some people don't like it.
