Last year I decided to wear braces (which is quite late, since I'm 22 already lol), that's right it was my own choice to wear it just because I want to have straight teeth and I'm sure that I will be happy with it after the process. However, on the first day when I wore the braces, I automatically cried because it was so fugly x___x". I definitely felt insecure at the beginning. I didn't even want to talk to friends at first because it was so ugly xD I mean... it doesn't look attractive at all right?! Also, after I had my braces, I didn't want to show my teeth on photos XD, people could only see me smiling since then.
But I got used to my braces after 3 months or so and I have been wearing braces for longer than a year now. I realized that it's actually a very normal thing to wear it. There are even people who are 30 years or older who are wearing braces and almost everybody had it when they were young.. so what's the big deal? Why should a brace face like me feel insecure about it? Yes, I got my confidence back after a couple of months xD.
My question to you:
Have you ever worn braces? Have you ever felt insecure before?
