The CDs I’ve met have all been from CDH (Hi Emily, hi Sandy!). I’d still like to make some inroads with a more local community, but for some reason I have imposter syndrome about it. I’m aware of a group, have been in communication, am on the mailing list, and I still balk when the time comes to lean into it. It doesn’t make much sense to me; I go out dressed fairly often, to go shopping or to have drinks or whatever. For some reason, though, meeting with this particular group intimidates me. I’ll get there, though!
I have to agree with Emily, get the makeover! The hour I spent with the esthetician at Sephora getting my makeup done was one of the most positive and validating experiences I have ever had. It was wonderful! You will not regret it!
