I was burned with boiling water as a kid. I have obvious gruesome scars to my neck and shoulder. My sisters wedding was fast approaching and as the Maid of honor I knew I had to find something to wear that looked nice and that I also felt comfortable in, in front of a lot of people. Today I was stressed would be an understatement. I had been avoiding thinking about it, until my sister called a bit panicked that I hadn't found a dress yet. I didn't want to let her down, I knew I had to find something. I went to the mall and half heartedly looked at all of the dresses, strapless moslty and way too revealing for me to feel comfortable in. I know it's not life or death, but it was important to me and my self esteeem and sense of self were being challenged. The next day I woke up and felt a presence with me telling me to go back to the mall. I was walking around my apartment taling to myself. Why would I go back? I was just there and there was nothing!? I said out loud "I don't want to go back, I want a day off to relax" The presence was insistent and kind, "you must go back" I laughed at myself for arguing with no one. I finally said "fine, I'll go back, but only so you'll leave am alone!" So I had a shower, argued a bit more with no one. and then found myself standing outside the same store in the mall where all I'd found the day before were strapless sresses I couldn't wear. I paused outside, scared to go in and find nothing again, the voice urged me on one last time. I walked in alone and the very first rack I went to, the very first dress was mine. My heart sank as it looked perfect, but I was sure would be the wrong size, I steadied myself as I peeked at the size, it was indeed my size! The only one and it was perfect! All of my stress feel away. I called my mom and sister and tried it on giggling the whole time. I thanked my guide whoever/whatever it was. It meant so much to me, so very much. I could now relax and enjoy the most imprtant day in my sisters life, without my gruesome scars stressing me out the whole time.
