I don’t know about you, but for me the road to becoming a tween was rocky. These were the crucial years where everyone was dividing into clicks that would remain in tack until high school. Also, I was going through a lot of changes of physically. One of those being that I was really sweating more and I learned quickly that sweat had an odor.
This ‘unexpected stink’ that my body was now giving off freaked me out a little bit. Ok so maybe it freaked me out a lot. How was my body producing this unpleasant aroma? More importantly, why was it all of sudden doing this? Hormones….. They can quite the pain, especially when you’re young and fitting in is seems like the number one priority in your world.
