When I look at this image I can’t help but break it down into the various flaws I see…….the short ingrained vertical frown lines between my eyebrows, the chicken pox scar left of my lips, the ever-present grey rings under them from persistent lack of sleep, the many light freckles that thwart any chance of me having “alabaster smooth skin”.
I used to dislike taking photos of me so “naked” but with age (and the development of digital photography where you can delete the really crappy images), I’ve become a bit more comfortable in my skin. Vanity doesn’t have quite as strong a hold over me as it used to.
Speaking of age, I guess I look fairly good for my age and this is not vanity speaking.. Put it this way, I wouldn’t mind a dollar for every time someone said I didn’t look my 2 score and 2 years. 🙂
How do you feel when you look at yourself in the mirror?
