face hate vent Anonymous 9968

I just got a haircut this afternoon (no drastic change) and of course took a bunch of selfies when I got home to see how it looked, send to friend, etc.

I have a really weird face and looking at the selfies started to upset me. All my features are huge – I like my big eyes and big mouth but I hate my big hook nose and big forehead. My eyelids are asymmetrical and I have really dark circles under my eyes. I'm embarrassed to think people look at me everyday. I don't think I can ever afford plastic surgery for my nose, and it feels like a waste of money anyway.

What do you hate about your face? How can I not hate my weird face?

>pic related and also lol pepperoni eyes

>looking at the selfies
Selfies are literal cancer for your self-esteem. They emphasize your features in the worst way when in reality, you don't look like that at all.

Photographer here, I can confirm this (not that it would be necessary) with my own experience. You hold your phone at an arm's length at most, so your lens has to work around that short distance with sort of a fisheye effect to get your entire face in the frame. This is also why photographers have to use different lenses for different subjects - wide-angle lenses are fine for landscape and such, but if you want to shoot portraits, you need longer lenses for less distortion, and these will require you to increase the distance between yourself and the model to get the whole face in the frame. My current go-to portrait lens is a 85mm and I have to be around 10 feet away from my model for a headshot.

Wow what a huge difference.

omg, thank you. this is crazy, that first one (24mm) looks exactly like what mine looked like. MAYBE I AM NOT HIDEOUS.

Look into a mirror, anon, not a camera.

I'll post some more comparisons! You can check the focal length of your selfies by reading the EXIF data or uploading it to http://metapicz.com/ to compare.

Btw the worst thing you can do is use your snapchat camera all the time. Even without the filters, it has tricks to make you look "better", like flipping the image.

I despise viewing most photos of myself because I see my mother's nose and my father's smile and I despise/don't care for them as people. Yeah, I need some more therapy regarding this issue… Maybe just exposure therapy. And new photos taken from five feet away with the right camera, apparently.

exactly, i think i look a lot better when i see myself in the mirror.

I go back and forth on despising my potato nose. Some days i feel normal and others i feel like a monster lol. I also dont believe in plastic surgery, this is the nose i am meant to have and anything else would look strange and unnatural.

I have been crying for a while and went and tore up almost all old pictures of me, and went through and deleted every picture I could find of myself.

I really hate waking up every day and having to be in this stupid flesh suit 24/7. I can’t stop thinking about grabbing a knife and stabbing myself over and over, but I have a boyfriend now and fuck. It’s just so hard. I’m so fucking tired of myself. I really try to love myself, but I just can’t. I really really wish I was dead.

Even though I feel this way, I also feel so guilty because I know there are people who have it way worse than me. And what I’m crying about is such a first-world problem, so I just feel like a terrible person.

I sound so annoying and immature. I just needed to vent. I’m sorry.

i didn't think much about my face, then i downloaded one of those filter apps and man…seeing it morph into my real face is such a huge insult. i look like a potato. how will i ever recover?

Hey. It's okay. Do the deep breath thing when you feel like that.

I'm an ugly girl too. Or, I think I'm ugly. Sometimes I have these moments that are either clarity or delusion and I think- if I have a boyfriend, I can't be so hideous, right? But then again, men would probably settle with fucking and wedding toothless hobbits, so maybe they're not a good way to tell how attractive you are. I guess my thought's derailing… I just mean that, maybe I'm not ugly. Maybe you're not ugly either. But even if we are, so what? Let's embrace it if that's our hand in life.

To be an ugly girl is only horrible because society tells us our looks are our only worth. But we're worth more than that, and as long as we're good people with good hearts, I think it's gonna be okay.

Or some such shit that'll probably sound stupid to me in the morning. I'm having the worst mood swing right now and feel manic/optimistic.
