“She smelled amazing!” I commented to my oblivious husband as we walked our muddy dog back home after our daily walk. “Did you smell that lady as she walked past us?”
Unfortunately, the lady was too far gone for me to awkwardly run up and ask what perfume she was wearing.
I hadn’t worn perfume in ages. I only wear it when I go out, and I hadn’t been anywhere. My husband is the same way. Why do we only wear perfume or aftershave when we go out?
This got me thinking about society and why we do the things we do in general.
Makeup is the same. Why do we apply it? It requires so much energy to put on, take off, and touch up throughout the day.
Some people with multiple sclerosis experience unusual symptoms that may affect their ability to do hair and makeup. Damage to fine motor skills can also make it tough to put on makeup at all, yet some of us still feel the need to wear it.
My husband often tells me he loves me just as I am, with or without makeup. So, why do I spend the little energy I have putting on makeup when I go out? Do I care that much about what others think?
It made me realize how much fatigue I was causing myself. And for what? Strangers who don’t even know me?
