Greta: When I got to high school, was when I started wearing black all the time. All Black All the Time, like the name of a sitcom.
I was very into dark, punk rock/alternative. I wanted to be different. Also, black was supposed to be slimming…. I needed to look slimmer, even though people said I wasn’t fat, I was “beautifully bodacious”... Well, my best friend, Laura, said that.
Only, truth is, I really was fat. I needed to hide that truth with black clothes.
I guess I was always hiding. Using my clothes to hide me. Everyone focuses on the outside of me, so they don’t look inside. That means safety to me. I never wanted anyone to know what I was like inside, because I was a mess.
So let my clothes give them my message: dark, into punk, different and not-fat.
Please, let them believe it.
