I tried waxing my legs today for the first time in years.
Then I remembered why I haven’t used wax strips in years.
It hurts. Sure, it doesn’t hurt for long, but it’s so very
unnecessary to put myself through it. I’ve been through
enough physical pain in the past and probably will in the
future, all of it relatively unavoidable. So why would I
cause myself more pain for no real reason? I threw the
wax strips away, but not before realising that although
I’m so good at avoiding causing myself physical harm,
I do very little to avoid hurting myself emotionally and
mentally. It’s like shaving my brain with wax strips
instead of a razor. If my brain were hairy.
