I used to not wear shorts. Wait, let's rewind. When I was younger, maybe between 12 and 17 or something like that, I loved my legs, and I remember how it started. I had heard my mom in a conversation with her friend who kept complimenting my legs, saying how nice they were. And that was how I started suddenly thinking my legs were the best.
But at some point, I started thinking that my legs were not so great anymore, specifically, my thighs. I thought they were too big and did not deserve to be shown. I refused to wear shorts, although I confidently - and strangely - wore mini skirts. Then one summer in 2017, the summer before the end of my marriage - I wore shorts out, on a particularly difficult day. I took pictures, and I saw my legs (and my thighs) in the pictures, and I was beside myself. How come I did not know I looked so good? Or why did I think that I didn't? And that, my people, is how my collection of shorts grew.
Prior to this, I only owned two shorts that I would wear outside the house - and only to places like the grocery store where I did not think I'd potentially run into people I knew. I guess I was okay with strangers seeing my big thighs. But oh my, how times have changed!
