How's your self image ?

Ok so this post will be a little different to what i normally talk about
This post will be about self image

For the past month i have felt a bit 'down & out' i can't exactly pin point what it is that makes me feel like this but i know for sure i need to change it

Last night we had a family 'pre christmas' dinner as my brother in law & his girlfriend are going to the states for the holidays, it was so much fun...until it was time for photos

I can't tell you how much i HATE having photos of myself taken, i just never look good ! I know the photos wont turn out nice so i resist having them taken SO hard, which in turn makes me that annoying 'oh, i don't do photos' kind of girl ! Errrgh. I managed to have some taken but i havent even looked at them (& not sure i will), the feeling of such negativity towards myself put a dampener on my night

This morning i woke up & i realised i NEED to change this way of thinking, i need to give myself a reason to like myself, it sounds so conceited but if i don't i worry i'll become self destructive.

So this is where i'm reaching do you get a positive self image ? What do you do to maintain it ?

  1. Hi :) I just noticed that you followed my blog so I thought I'd come and have a look and give you a follow back.

    I can really relate to this post. I absolutely hate getting pictures of myself taken and I refuse to look at pictures of myself. For example, I have a lot of trouble flicking through the pics on a camera if I know there are pics of me on there because I just don't want to look at myself. Also I avoid the facebook pages of high school friends because I don't want to accidentally stumble upon my formal pictures.

    Despite this, I actually don't mind the way I look in the mirror and I don't think I'm ugly or anything like that, I just hate pictures. Weird.

    1. Oh my goodness !! We sound exactly the same, errrrgh i just HATE photos...the mirror & i are friends (with the right lighting)

    2. Yeah LOL. Mirror photos are fine by me as well it's just when other people take the picture.
