I rediscovered this picture from about a month ago:
At the time I joked that he was practicing for his GlamourShots session. It's like he was saying "I know I'm pretty but you can tell me it again." But now it's making me ask the question "Am I pretty today?" I'm trying to remember the last time I was told that by someone who didn't want something from me. And I can't remember.
I know that I am intelligent, kind, passionate, witty, unpredictable (in a good way), loyal, reliable, compassionate, and caring. I know that there is much more than physical attractiveness to attract someone. But does it make me a bad person to want a teeny tiny bit of validation every once in a while? The media doesn't provide any. Family dynamics preclude it too.
How does one move past this? Oh wise Jezzies please help a sista out today. :)
