52-Week Self Portrait Project | 52/29
For Week 29, I brought it back to something quite simple – me. No fancy make-up, 2 lights, just home from work, and as cozy and unmade as I can be!
This skin I’m in was not always easy to like, but these days, I couldn’t imagine trying to be anything else. For all my splendors and all my faults, I am me and recently my friends have reminded me, that is just awesomesauce.
I have been called unimaginative, pretentious, boastful, and a string of other things and I used to let those things get me down. As time has passed, I realized that we have to be our own cheerleaders from time to time because that is how we give ourselves confidence to break out of walls we put up around us.
Personally, looking back, I think the people who try to bring us down are the ones who have the issues, and need to give themselves a hard look in the mirror and figure out what it is they hate about themselves so much.
Life is short – we should be who we are and not try to put ourselves into the boxes of who people want or think we should be.
Just be – simply….
