Where do I begin? In the beginning of our relationship I'll admit I was naive to your presence. Of course, can you blame a five year old for not acknowledging the love and care that ones' eyebrows deserve? I like to think of those years as a time of being carefree. You did your thing and I did mine and everything was great.
Then those preteen years came along. I was neglected to be taught about the arts of trimming, tweezing, plucking, waxing and threading in order to keep you from crossing the line. And since I didn't know any better, you did cross that line. You grew wild and free while I failed to keep you under control.
Those years truly put damage in our relationship. I loathed you and you loathed me for not paying attention to you the way I should have. Just think of Mia Thermopolis in The Princess Diaries pre-makeover. My middle school self rocked bushy brows to add to the already awkward preteen years. Lovely.

Then high school came along. That summer before entering a new school I swore that I had seen the last of your unruly days and purhcased my first pair of tweezers (let's take a moment to be thankful I didn't think to break out the razor). Sadly, this was a time when I became a little too ambitious and excited to be rid of you. You seemed to barely be around anymore as the trend of practically invisible brows was engraved in my mind. I am grateful that you have forgiven me for this time of desperation and unfaithfulness in our journey.

College is a time where you truly become an adult. You mature and experience your first time of being on your own and taking care of yourself. I'd like to think that once college hit, I realized your importance. With icons such as Cara Delevingne taking social media by storm with her beautifully full eyebrows, I knew it was time to show you the love you deserved. I let you grow to your full potential and instead of being oblivious to you, I made sure to enhance your beauty. It has been a long journey, but I think we have finally figured out our strengths and weaknesses.
