Everyone does it. You know you have. I’m freely admitting that I do it all the time. I have heard a lot of talk about it lately on social media and even the news. What am I talking about?
Ellen even had Bradley Cooper take one when she hosted the Oscars on Sunday.
I didn’t get to watch the Oscars but you better believe I heard all about that selfie.
Selfies can be a very powerful thing. I saw a short documentary on selfies/self-image the other day and it really made me think. The documentary showed a group of mothers and daughters who were tasked to take a selfie that was blown up and shown at an art gallery. You wouldn’t believe how many of them didn’t want to do it because they thought they weren’t pretty enough.
I don’t think selfies are about beauty. I think they are about being real, but apparently there are a lot of women who don’t think they are “pretty” enough to take one. I say just do it! If you don’t think you are pretty then who else will? It’s the whole love yourself first thing all over again….
But again, selfies aren’t about being pretty, they are about being you, the real you. Sure, I know that I only post the ones I like but still…
You are beautiful just the way you are. Trust me when I say that no one even sees that imperfection that only you are worrying about. In fact, your imperfections make you beautiful.
So go post a selfie or ten. And remember the next time you see one to tell that person they are beautiful!!
