It used to be my life, I would spend hours on my make up and hair and go shopping for new clothes all the time, I was so confident then too, I would talk to anyone, flirt, etc. Now when I do those things I feel conceded and I think its a waste of time and money... I have the attitude of a 50 year old mom! I refuse to do anything girly, I feel fake when I do, Why such a change, I used to be SUCH a girlie girl, always smiling and happy... This was while I had a boyfriend and the change happened towards the end of the relationship, I just got really depressed... I also gained like 15 lbs... I don't know if its because of him or what, I also hate bringing attention to myself I rather just fade into the background, when guys approach me I usually turn them down right away, even act bitchy and sometimes make fun of them a little, I never used to be like this, why did this happen? How do I get out of this rut?

At some point in your life, someone or something might have made you feel bad about yourself. It is a sign of depression to not take care of yourself. You deserve to be feminine and indulge that part of yourself, there is nothing wasteful or fake about it. I think if you slowly start your old habits back up that'll really help you. I went through the same thing and now I have made more effort in my appearance and I'm feeling like my old self again! Taking care of yourself is a luxury every woman should indulge in. It's not just a want it's food for your soul.1
