no one can ever, ever tell me that I should feel bad or wrong for taking selfies and appreciating my appearance. I will not go back to hating my body and face so much that I couldn’t look at myself without wanting to tear my skin off. no one will ever have a valid reason for why I should feel ashamed of taking photos of myself. I will not put their feelings before my own. I will NOT give up the love I have for myself because it makes somebody uncomfortable or jealous.
I’ve seen so much selfie hate recently. For people who have had struggles with their looks and self confidence and when you finally get to a point where you are happy with your looks and body, IT FEELS GOOD! And you want to share it!! And if the people on your friends list and looking at your wall are really your friends they would accept it. You don’t have to complement someone’s every post but who are you to tear them down about feeling good about themselves. It shouldn’t happen. It’s another form of bulling. You never know if that picture may be the one thing that made that person smile or feel good about themselves that day or for the first time in a long time. Yes there are egotistical people who don’t need the praise but there are also people out there just trying to make it,just learning to accept themselves again or for the first time and there is no reason to make them feel bad for doing so.
