My High Heel Experience ~ Ladies Of Hive

Okay, ladies, it is another funny and interesting contest we will be participating in this week and I am glad to be participating in the contest once again.

Like always this week got two questions but I would be attempting one which says;

It's a little early for Halloween, so let's hear those High Heeled horrors, Bootie bungles, Flat fluster, Flip Flop flops, Wedge wipeouts, Croc asks, tales of your worst footwear.

Well because of my one-time experience with high heels, I have made a promise never to go near those set of things called high heels. Moreover, I don't think I will be needing them because I am a tall lady and wouldn't need them.

The experience wasn't a fun one and thinking back about myself go through that experience always get me cringing because I knew the pains.



My experience
Since I am a tall lady, I really did not bother myself about going to the market to buy high heels because it only made me taller than my peers. Lucky enough, I had understanding parents who never disturbed me about getting those things and never got them for me because they knew I don't like them.

One day, a family friend who was about to get married added me as one of her bridesmaids and I just couldn't say no but I never knew it was going to be the beginning of my pain.

My mom and I decided to go to the market to buy things I would be needing for the wedding and while on our tour, my mom came across a very beautiful high-heeled shoe and decided to get them for me. I tried talking her out of buying that kinda shoe because they weren't my thing but she was bent on buying stating that it was a wedding and it wouldn't be right to go on flat sandals while others wore heels.

I dreaded heels even though I have never worn them but many times I have seen other people experience and how they tend to change their walking styles whenever they wore that and for, I love wearing things that made me comfortable, and high heels aren't part of what I call "comfortable".

My mom finally bought the shoe of her own will and I went back home feeling depressed because I still can't imagine myself on that but for peace to be, I had to let it be and do what she says.



The day for the wedding came, and I was forced to wear those set of things called high heeled, we got to the wedding venue, and indeed the other girls were on high heeled. Although we all were in high heels, I still was taller than every one of the girls and that made them laugh at me. Everyone's focus was on the tallest girl in the crew and I wasn't finding it funny. They all dreaded to be my partner because I made them feel like an ant.

I was beginning to regret accepting to wear them to the church but I stood strong like I wasn't affected but in real fact, I was affected by these people's words and actions.



Did I state that was my first time wearing that, my horror started when the music began for us to match in, we began dancing and I didn't know when the heels caught hold on something that got me slipping to the floor?

The whole hall was focused on the girl who was on the floor, the shame was too much that I had to run outside with tears in my eyes because of the humiliation, and ever since that day, I have never tried wearing that again because of the humiliation I faced. It wasn't easy to forget in a hurry.



I invite @glotokens, @zellypearl to participate in this contest.

Hello @evegrace. As I was reading it, I just couldn't laugh because I could feel your pain. I have been a victim of that humiliation also...falling in heels. So I know how you felt. All eyes were on you. After all, you should have been accustomed to wearing high heels. All ladies do, don't they?

Thanks for sharing your story. It's truly relatable. Have a good rest of your week, and take care.

Yeah, well it is expected that all ladies should but I just don't feel comfortable wearing that, so they shouldn't blame me for that and moreover, I am a tall lady, I don't need those things.

Yes, if you don't feel comfortable in them as I don't either, then don't wear them. I haven't worn heels in over 30 years.

When I said:

All eyes were on you. After all, you should have been accustomed to wearing high heels. All ladies do, don't they?

I was just saying that this is what society thinks all women should do and be accustomed to. It was not meant anything toward you specifically.

Take care.

Hi @evegrace. The people around you are mean!!!
I can never understand meanness!
Your mother meant well...
Thanks for sharing.
Good luck with the contest!
Friends can help you define your priorities. People tend to pick friends who are similar to them. Because we fall prey so easily into this similarity trap, it is important to try to stretch yourself to learn from some of those opposites. There is some truth to the saying that “Birds of the same feathers, flock together.” Knowing this can help you grow by expanding your range of friends and trying out some new points of view.
Ladies of Hive can be the place where you can grow.

I understand, I have a friend who was tall and didn't wear high heels whereas I was noticeably smaller but I was almost her height if I wore my 6 inch Platform boots. I don't really like the Stiletto shoes as I prefer shorter chunkier heels for more practical foot ware.
My idiotic vanity more than my mother is why I still keep a few and wear them only when I would most often sit rather than walk too far in them.
I retired my high heels a while ago into Photo Props.

Stay true to yourself @evegrace ,thanks for posting 🤗

Thanks for your comment, well imagine her wearing heels again, that's how it seems for me. Well, most dresses are so beautiful worn with Stiletto.

🤣🤣🤣, okay that's hilarious.

Thank you once again.

Very sad your story, it is hard when we have to go through these moments. But I'm sure that unpleasant moment made you strong. No girl really needs high heels. I congratulate you for making the decision not to wear them anymore. A hug 😘

Thanks and you are right, they made me strong even though they made me cringe just at the sight of heels but they are always beautiful that I wish I could wear them most times maybe the wedge kinda one.

Thank you 🤗
