THE DIARY OF A GLASSES WEARING GIRL

I remember the first time I wore medicated glasses, I couldn’t walk properly. It felt like the floor had steps. I couldn’t look down; I had to look straight up when walking. I was so scared I was going to fall from an imaginary step so I avoided wearing the glasses altogether.

I complained to the doctor and he told me when I get used to the glass, I wouldn’t feel like I was walking on steps. It took a while but eventually, the floor was straight again, lol.

It’s being a year now that I started wearing glasses; again, this time constantly. A year ago, the glass wouldn’t stay on my nose, and if it did it felt like I was carrying the weight of the world on my nose. It was so bad that I had to put tissue on the bridge of my nose before I could wear the glass. It was so uncomfortable; many times I wished I didn’t have to wear it. But then again, with time my nose learnt to accommodate its new neighbour.

I remember then that many times I would forget the glass at home while going out especially when I was going to church. I wasn’t used to wearing it, wasn’t used to taking it out along with me.

Wearing glasses changed my look drastically. I would dress up, and in mind, I’m looking fly, but all that would change immediately I put on the glass. I would go from looking fly to looking nerdish and I hated it, but there was nothing I could do about it. I have realised that wearing glasses has a way of changing your entire look. At the beginning, it was kind of depressing and it took a lot of getting used to, but give it time you would adjust to the look glasses gives you.

Sometimes I just imagine how I would look on my wedding day. I ask myself, would I wear contacts or would I wear the glasses? How would I do my hair? You see I have realised that there are certain ways you have to do your hair so that you can still look good with your glasses; because glasses changes everything.

Many people have told me you are more beautiful without your glasses, must you wear it every time? Thing is, I already know I’m more beautiful without the glasses, but would beauty make me see well?

To be continued

I would so much appreciate it if people (male & female) who wear glasses can write their own experiences and it would be posted here on the blog. I know we have similar challenges, have heard weird things or opinions from others; so please let’s make this fun by writing in. I would be delighted to share your experiences too. You can send yours to memoirsofagreatlady@gmail.com
