When I was getting ready to shower I took a face selfie. I looked at it, all my flaws, all my fat, my tired eyes despite 11 hours of sleep today. And then went to Facebook to post this –
I look at all the profile pics and cover photos and photo albums and I wonder who airbrushes or photoshops. I know everyone looks for the best pic of themselves. I just took a “real” selfie and for a minute thought about making it my profile pic – but then what would you all think about me?
So I didn’t post it. The pic I have on my Facebook profile is a “good” pic of me and my hubby. Before I gained 50lbs. Before I became extremely depressed. Before his back blew out and we lost the future we had planned. I look like I’ve aged 20 years in less than a year. But if I post it on my Facebook people will see the REAL me, the vulnerable me.
If I didn’t want to stay so anonymous I’d post the pic here.
