I only showered once a week for my entire life and I realised how probably I was smelly every time I went out and I just wanna disappear from this world
For my entire life I’ve been only showering once a week and today I realised how bad that was. For reference I’m currently 23.
As a child, my family wasn’t rich but not poor either, we’re quite middle class. During my teenage years I just used a lot of deodorant to avoid bad smells, and I thought that was it.
Anyway, a few weeks ago I have moved into my own place and I also got into jogging. Considering I started to jog every morning I started to get quite sweaty so I decided to shower after every jog, since the smell was quite bad and my deodorant didn’t seem to cover it.
This lead me to basically showering almost every day, which made me feel great & clean and cozy. However, this weekend I had a terrific realisation. Basically I didn’t jog for the the past 2 days therefore I didn’t shower. And today, after not showering for 2 days, I realised I was quite smelly. Which made me realise that I was probably smelly for my whole life, since I only showered once a week.
I started to google it and yeah, TIL that we gotta shower everyday and not once a week. I can’t believe I’ve been like this for my whole life, I’m just thinking back to all my social interactions that I had and I was probably smelly.
Also I was looking to pictures from my school days and I noticed my hair is terrible and oily in all of them. FML.
EDIT: I messed up even more, I was reading your comments on this post at work today while being logged in and a colleague of mine passed by my desk. She asked me what I was reading and saw the post, and also my username. Now I think everyone in the office is going to know that I used to show only once per week. I’m done with life
