There's been times when I was down and out and I didn't care much at all about my outer appearance. Some days I didn't even brush my teeth or comb my hair. I could get away with it because I worked at home, but sometimes I even went to the store like that, and sometimes I got some weird looks. Now I realize, outer appearance is important.
It is not important as how I feel about myself on the inside but my appearance on the outside can in some ways reflect I feel on the inside. Therefore, I'm looking into caring more about my body on the outside.
