Self Confidence

About three months ago, I was leaving the apartment for a birthday dinner with my Wife/Side Chick/Ace/BFF/Guinea Pig/Ride or Die (@ADapperChick) and I felt extremely self-conscious. I’ve gained a few pounds, especially in places that I didn’t realize could gain weight. Within that moment, she brought me outside and gave me one of those speeches.. Yeah! You know those “love yourself because you’re hot” type speeches…Gosh! I hated her for that. I was so annoyed. I wanted to sink in self-pity and eat a few more ice cream bars. I’m sure we all have had one of those days and I have been having a lot of them lately. But with her by my side as my cheerleader, even when I feel like a hippopotamus, it makes pushing towards my goal even easier. So cheers to all those friends who are there to pull us out of dark and crazy places. Applause to the friends who are there to support you when are alone.. You guys are the REAL MVPs.
