Angie's thoughts on boys... The Shoe Analogy.

Hi everybody! Florida is great, and I just had the most intense workout ever of all time ever, but I'll save that for another blog entry. This one is about boys. I was talking to Bridget (aka SkinnyBiddy) today about guys... I think that at least for myself, I have had to get over the mind-set as a fat girl that I should go for or accept the advances of any guy who shows interest in me... because who knows when the next one will come along. It's not a good mindset to be in, and it's put me at a place with guys which is... Kinda not the best. But I know that the mind needs to change, and I also know, because of what our society values, as we all shrink there will be more interest and attention lavished upon us. Which is great. But that makes keeping it all in mind even more important. Here's what I said to Bridg...

boys are like shoes.
you have to try them on before you buy.
you can try to buy them online, but you really never know if they truly fit right before you have the chance to wear em in person.
you'll try on so many pairs of shoes in your life, but buy only a fraction of what you try on.
there will be shoes that fit, and look great, but just don't feel right.
just because a shoe fits doesn't mean it fits in your life, and just because a boy might show interest in you, doesn't mean you don't have the right to reserve judgment.

I can't take full credit for the shoe theory, my therapist kinda said it to me... But I think it's an important reminder for anyone like me through this journey.
