I feel like I can pretend that I'm somehow pretty/attractive/tolerable/not-nauseating until I see pictures of myself.
And then...reality sets in.
And I'm not pretty. I'm not attractive. I'm not tolerable. And nauseating? Well...I'm not sure if it's that bad, but well, it's not good.
I think I could have much better self-esteem if there were no cameras/mirrors.
