I remember when my muscles where finally starting to develop. I couldn’t pass a reflective surface, never mind a mirror, without having a look and seeing if it was all still there. As if it would go away easily if I didn’t keep checking. I beat myself up over it for a while, questioned my narcissism, but I worked hard for it so I was going to enjoy it and be proud of my achievements.
I put in some serious gym time to get in shape so this was well earned. I used to love it… until I moved here.
