I think I made my eyes worse so that I could wear glasses.
I was 12. I had no idea it was a bad idea.
There were only a handful of kids in my class who wore glasses. Out headmaster, an old, respected woman also did. And my father also. That were probably the reasons why I wanted to wear glasses too.
Well, primarily for the first reason.
Wearing glasses was a scarcity for me. I really thought it was cool to have a little glasses case. When the class started, I could get the case out, open it, and put my glasses on.
Like… a professional looking.
Then I came to high school and the coolest kids I knew were all free of glasses. And I already couldn’t read the whiteboard without my glasses.
What seemed cool changes. So never make an important choice for it if you can’t go back.
