girls are way too hard on themselves today
this year i have learned one new thing about myself. i am way too critical on myself. i feel like a lot of girls are too critical of themselves. we see a lot of instagram models and their hd selfies with their "perfect makeup" and we compare ourselves to them. what if that is their life? all they have and do is their makeup everyday for that one selfie that you began to beat yourself up about? i was this person this year. i do not wear makeup, i do not get my nails done, and my hair is natural so it's poofy with a old fashion crinkle. while i attract a lot of men who tell me how beautiful i am when i go look at my photos i feel like i am too plain. it's like i want to add more, i do not feel like i'm pretty enough or it's just something always wrong. i am so tired of seeing other girls on instagram and wanting to be them. i used to never be this way. i used to take a photo for myself and just upload it. now when i take a photo i will examine it and point out all of it's flaws and then just end up deleting it. this beauty standard of today has really messed up myself image.i view myself as plane jane. i think i look like a penguin when i stand straight forward and my lips look like clown lips because they are too big. i feel like i will never be satisfied with myself. all thinks to the beautiful frauds on instagram posting selfies. instagram is the only social media i have. *sigh* typing about this makes me feel somewhat better that i finally talked about it. i feel like i'm a basic b**ch is what guys call them. i'm basic plane and my hair is not what is usually desired from society. do you think i'm being too hard on myself? or do i need to just shut up and go eat breakfast? this is a everyday problem for me of me being too critical of my looks. i want to know if anyone else feels this way thanks to social media.
