Having not seen each other for almost 2 months, some of you are naturally a little self-conscious. It somehow feels like a first date, for the second time.
“Will he notice my eye bags from my Netflix binges when he sees me?”
“Will he notice that pesky zit that ALSO, unfortunately, survived the circuit breaker that’s on my forehead?”
“WILL HE STILL LOVE ME?”
Ok, calm down. Your boyfriend will still love you of course – but looking even better coming out of the Circuit Breaker never really hurt anyone too!

Same Old Brand New You
