I know I don’t post alot of photos of myself on here. I don’t know why. So this quick pic slip today is quite an unlikely thing for me to do!
When I was younger and MySpace was hot and Facebook was the big new thing (lol, I know I’m totally dating myself here), I would seriously post a new selfie practically every single day. I loved it. I got addicted to all the positive validation I could easily receive online.
But as I’ve gotten older, I just outgrew that. And I stopped enjoying even taking selfies at all. So I don’t appear in many photos anymore. Even when I travel someplace really cool, my photos will be 99% my surroundings, and maybe <1% me.
It’s probably also related to how I’ve lost confidence in my appearance as I’ve gotten older too. I know that’s something I need to turn around, and just haven’t yet. And as I posted about here, this year of lockdown only made that worse for me, as it’s taken away all my reasons to even get dressed to wear makeup or style my hair. Those reasons everyday for me are now gone, and I’ve had a hard time doing it otherwise.
Anyhow, I did find a recent selfie of myself that I like so I can use it for my quick pic slip today. It’s still probably a year old since I haven’t taken one in a long while. But I figured I can reveal myself to you all – my squad. 🙂
How about you? Do you post alot of photos of yourself online anymore? Why or why not?
