Confession Sunday

I will admit it but I haven't really wanted to talk about it. I must get it out though. I have been hating myself lately. I hate the way I look. What prompted this, it viewing pictures of myself from Denver. I hate the way I look. It is not so much as my weight but my face. I feel ugly. I never look right in pictures. My smile looks fake. When I don't have a big grin, people complain. I never look right. I see other people's photos and they do not look like this. My hair doesn't look good. Nothing looks good. If I am going to dive into the world of online dating, I need a decent picture. In my mind, I don't have any.

  1. Not that I i'm a psychiatrist or overly qualified to talk about self-esteem but if you don't think you're pretty no one else will find you pretty and I'm 100% sure you are gorgeous. I can relate, I've had a lot of days of feeling really unattractive too. Smile today, and mean it, and then take a picture. I think that's a good start...

  2. Michelle gives good advice...also, I don't know of a single person who is 100% happy with the way they come out in photos. You should've seen some of the doozies from my London trip, which my friend tagged me in (that I subsequently deleted from my profile.)

  3. oh no! gotta raise that head up and be proud of yourself my friend!!! :) We can dress differently and try crazy photography tricks and what not, but our bodies are the way God wanted them to be - that's gotta mean something, right?

    Whenever I'm in doubt mode I just wear my favorite outfit and for some reason I gain my confidence back (it's weird). Not saying clothes changes much, but that if your mind is right the rest follows.

    You're not alone! :)
