Sometimes when I walk my pants fall down. Not all the way down but they’re not sitting where they should be. It’s annoying but I WILL NOT WEAR A BELT!
In 5th grade gym class we were playing a game of dodgeball (best game ever!). I was wearing a pair of beige shorts with a belt. I bent down to pick up a ball to throw to the other side of the gym and as I did this I felt the pressure around my waist build and then POP…my belt broke. I was so horrified. I think I thought others would think it meant I was “fat” and make fun of me. Reality is, I put my belt on to tight. Since that day I have never worn a belt with the purpose of holding up pants (all of my belts are those fashion high waist ones).
I find it interesting that something that could be seen as insignificant still has such a major impact on me. When people suggest I wear a belt I tell them no and think in my head, “I don’t want it to break.” I guess it wasn’t really a little thing if something that happened about 15 years old influences you still.
Are there any little incidents in your life that still play some sort of role in your life?
