Self Portrait Saturday

When I first started blogging I was looking around the internet and I came across a blog that had the feature Self Portrait Thursday. It’s been so long that I can’t remember what the name of the blog was or I’d link to it. I thought that was interesting, but I could never do that. I thought it seemed a little self focused and then there’s the other thing. I hate pictures of me. When I was a kid I don’t think I did. But as soon as hormones became part of the picture I think I stepped out of them. Because the camera captures all of you, even the parts you might not want to see.

I don’t know the motivation behind that other blogger’s self portraits. But here is mine: I don’t want to hate pictures of myself anymore. I feel like it will be therapeutic for me to force myself really look at myself and embrace that I am worthy of the careful attention of a photo, or multiple photos. So here goes…

 

There. That wasn’t too bad, was it?

Why do I feel naked?
