Self Love Practice Tip #39
In today’s post we will continue our talk on learning to embrace pictures taken of you. I know of some people who have not stepped in front of the camera for years even though of them really want to take pictures of themselves. Being afraid to take your pictures makes you miss out on documenting your life moments. First of all, you are not alone, secondly, its okay to not want to take pictures, but if it is because of any kind of shame or judgement on how you look, here is something to ponder on. There are so many photo you look at on a daily basis, whether it is on the TV, social media, most of which are edited. In earlier days, when people read magazines, a lot, what they didn’t realise that the pictures in them were photoshopped. Now on social media like the Instagram, the game is to have the best photos for more likes and more followers. Hence everyone wants the most captivating photo and their so many apps for it now. What people don’t realise is that in the process of becoming famous or an influencer, they sometimes modify the truth. You must realise that most photos which are getting hundreds and thousands of likes are most likely edited or remastered by people who post them because all they want is to learn money. Don’t feel bad when you take a photo and it does not automatically look like the one on social media. You are beautiful despite all the flaws, the number of likes or any other measure you have in your mind. The beauty is that there is no measure. Be careful of what you are comparing yourself to.
