Here’s an important selfie. I avoid profile pictures at all costs because I feel so ugly when I see them. I’m not sure I have ever seen a photo of me in profile that didn’t make me cringe, but I’m trying here to be nice to myself, to not cringe, to not hurl insults in a way that bruises that part of me that is greater than my body.
I don’t feel pretty today, attractive today or particularly confident today. Here is my proof that I struggle with this shit every single day but I am posting this to remind myself that even on days, and in pictures, where I feel ugly, my worth is not based there. My worth is inherent in my being and is never something that can be taken from me.
