Selfies for self-conscious people.
selfie - n. a picture that you take of yourself especially by using the camera on your smartphone
When have you ever taken a selfie and the first time it's been the one you love most? That's like saying the first person you dated was 'the one' for you.
There's always a few attempts—find that perfect lighting, the proper tilt of the head, hair coiffed just right.
But it also paints a picture of how critical we are of ourselves—I don't like my smile in this one, my hair isn't right, too many wrinkles. And then we paint over our truth with a filter.
For every self-conscious thought you have about your selfie, here's what I say to that:
- It won't always turn out how you picture it.
- Embrace who you are, every crinkle and wrinkle.
- Filters are fun, but a friendly face is flawless.
And sometimes it's just fun to look back on it.
