I’m going to turn off “Confessions of a Bad, Ugly Singer” in a couple more days. It just feels like the right thing to do… for now. I’m about to get my hair cut. I don’t want any of the same hair on my head that was present during the lawsuit. I want a fresh start. I wish I could say that this is 100% behind me forever, but the truth is it is my identity now and there is no escaping it. Almost every time I go out, it comes up. It even affected my dating life. Last year, I was heavily pursued by someone. Things were going pretty well and we started dating. One day, on a date, he told me that one of his work colleagues announced in front of his co-workers that he was dating the “girl who was sued for being too ugly”. Shortly after, this man who had pursued me denied that he had ever really liked me like that in the first place and that we were never dating.
I’d love to shrug it off and say his loss (which it is) and pretend like it’s not a big deal.
It’s a big deal. I still want the truth out.
Crazy to think the massive domino effect that a complete stranger could have on my life.
Every part of my life.
