I'm sure it's not just me that feels this way. Every time I look in a mirror, I can't help but try and pick apart every feature of mine. Or even worse is when I see myself in pictures I can't help but notice all 1000 things that could be wrong.
Who else is guilty of being their own worst critic?
It really depends, but I do think that we are often WAY too harsh on ourselves. Recognizing things we want to change is healthy, criticizing ourselves is not.
I know I go against societal norms, but I actually do look at myself most days and like how I look. Most days I don't care if I'm not the perfect weight, or that my boobs aren't perfect, or that my bum is ginormous lol. I know I have to live with myself and I would rather sit and think about what I can do to make myself look better to myself than sit and think about how all the small awful features on me just look... well, awful.
Every once in a while I have days like that. Sometimes I like what I see, other times I don't care one way of the other. But when my skin is breaking out and has dry patches everywhere, I don't like what I see at all.
It's funny that you'd mention that, because I just got done with an intense session of self hatred. Like, seriously, I just wrote down every single thing I hated about my physical appearance, in detail. It was long.
And WHY? Cause I'm f***ed in the head, that's why. It really sucks. :/ I can't really think of myself as attractive.
Well I'm mildly satisfied when I look in the mirror haha. I think I have pretty stunning eyes, as I've been told also, I think they are a little too big though haha, I like the greenish color. I also have long ass eye lashes, they don't really show that well in photo's though, they are longer then a lot of girls haha. I think I have a pretty cool hair color, brown with silverish streaks in it. I have nice lips I guess? Lol. And my nose looks OK I guess? I'm fine with everything but my skin, it's too white and sometimes I break out abit, and as you can see in my photo my face looks red from it. I think I'd look amazing with a tan. Overall my facial features are pretty smooth and not out of purportion, so I guess I'm fine.
Sometimes I do. Then other times I'm just like Oh God look away! I assume these types on insecurities aren't uncommon, and as long as one doesn't let them get them down TOO much, it's not that much of a problem.
When I look in the mirror it's not the reflection I'm thinking about. It's the idea that there may be other things on the other side of the mirror that aren't on this side. Something about them creeps me out.
