Do you see that new profile photo of moi? Shall we take a minute to discuss the endless inner dialogue that occurred before posting of said photo? Do you all want to know that I have posted and deleted that same damn photo eleventy billion times today?
Could I be any lamer.
Here is how my tiny brain works-
First, my oldest child informs me that, as his braces are off, I need to get with the program and update my profile.
Preferably with a photo that does not include him.
So, faced with the options of A) a photo of 2 of my 3 children, which isn't really an option, or, B) a random avatar from Google images, I opt for C), a photo of myself.
Why not? I query my inner self.
Because, my inner self shoots back. We are sick of our own self. We go out of our way not to look in mirrors.
But, I say, I am having a fairly decent hair day.
Get over it, says inner self.
I then tell my inner self to shut up and grab my digital camera.
I take 2, hate them both and my inner self laughs triumphantly.
And I wonder why, at 37, am I so fucking worried about looking, you know, blah.
Why am I not confident enough?
Where is all that confidence I tell my kids to have?
So, there is the photo.
Expect it to be down in 5 minutes.
Because I just realized that, in it, I am not wearing any makeup.
So, tell me... is it just me, or do the rest of you also struggle with vanity issues?
