You’re very kind. I photoshop them lol...nothing drastic but you’d be surprised at what simple adjusting to shadows and lighting can do. Eases the imperfections. I get lucky with a picture every now and then and those are what I will post And I’m comfortable here.At least you take really good pictures! I've never understood why you down on your looks, you've looked great in the pictures you post here- unlike me, who never has!
I believe some people are just photogenic, too. it has to do with skin tone and features.
I’ve just always been uncomfortable in my skin, from when I was little. I really think it’s the hair and glasses...teased by peers growing up. So it’s hard to get past that I guess. But I also see what you don’t see in photos, lol.
growing out the gray was a mistake, I think, but I’m not going back now. I’m sharing here, and it probably sounds more dramatic in print. I’ve come to an acceptance and while I’ll gripe here I don’t obsess over it. But I do talk to the mirror on ocassion with a “OMG, a face only a mother can love” lol. It’s done with love and humor though. I do not hate on myself ever.
