I’m hesitant to rely on a calculator suited for adults.
You know when you see pictures of yourself, ones your friends took, ones that you might not have known were being taken, and your friends/whoever are saying “That’s a great picture of you!” and all you can think is OMG MY FACE CHINS BODY HANDS EYES MY EVERYTHING HOLY SHIT DO I LOOK LIKE THAT?
Yeah, that moment. I think most of us have that. I’m not particularly hating on my own appearance - I think I’m pretty cute - but I can still cringe at a candid photo.
Until I realized something. When I look at a photo of me, I’m seeing an entirely different me than my friends are seeing.
Because my friends actually see me for how I really look, all the time. I never see that.
Every time you see yourself in a mirror, you are subconsciously posing. You are arranging yourself in a certain way. Same for a staged photograph. You’re arranging yourself. How you see yourself in a mirror is not how you look most of the time, when you’re just having a casual convo or walking down the street.
Your friends see the regular you constantly. It’s the only one they see. They’re used to how you really look. YOU ARE NOT. So when they see a photo of you, they’re comparing it to how you look most of the time. You are comparing it to how you look in a mirror, i.e. not really how you look. You’ve set yourself up with an unrealistic idea of how you ought to look. We all do it. While they’re seeing you laughing at something and enjoying it, you’re looking at your chins with your mouth wide open, because you never actually see yourself like that.
Once I sort of internalized that, I could look at photos of myself with much more equanimity.
