I saw this on fb and it got me thinking....not just about plastic surgeries, but also about some friends from the past who CHANGE! And i mean, change totally from how you used to know them!

Read comment first:

So, I just ran into someone that I hadn't seen for nearly 20 yrs. She stopped me and we chatted for a while while i tried to place her from what she was saying . . . not from her face. Eventually, I had to ask. She was SHOCKED and quite offended (to say the least) that I didn't recognize her. Her reaction made me feel quite guilty. Once she told me who she was, I could then see a very, very slight resemblance. Well, it turns out she had a TON of plastic surgery. I'm not for or against plastic surgery . . . to each his/her own, but don't go changing up your looks and then faulting me for not recognizing you!! I had some choice words for her, but I bit my tongue.

Ok, some past friends never had surgery, but I met one lately, she had gotten like 3 times her former size, so....it was hard to initially recognize her, but her voice was same and there was a hint of her former face, amidst all the 'volumptousness'.

What's your take? When you meet people from the past, have you not been able to recognize some? And what are the general comment you hear about yourself? Do people say you have changed??

As for me, funny, people meet me after like 28 years and they call me all my names! Official and unofficial, meaning they still 'remember me like yesterday!' I even get shocked when some look at me and ask me "So, where are your glasses?" or "Your eyes are no longer red" [had serious case of allergy and conjunctivitis growing up, so always had red eyes]! .... Some tell me straight "You have not changed at all, you still look the same!".... Ok, i honestly do wonder if that is a praise or a yab! I mean, 20+ freaking years and you tell me I am still same physically? Perhaps it is a compliment.....
A friend once attributed it to the fact that I've not had a child.....and i was like wow! I know ladies that look better AFTER having kids (i just concluded she was trying to console herself for looking older than me?)...


Personally, I think it is all about each person's health maintenance routine! Moisturizers, age-defying creams etc are not made for fancy! They serve a purpose! and of course, eating healthy and exercising has benefits too!

Surgery? When you do it, be nice enough to nicely tell people that you 'may look a little different'...#Me Thinks.
