Take More Selfies

I think I’m in the minority when I say people need to take MORE pictures of themselves. In a time of influencer culture and kids filming Tiktoks in the streets, I’m one of those people that says “good for them.”

It’s hard to be self-confident. I think it comes in waves, you feel really good about yourself then you all of a sudden feel really bad about yourself.

It’s harder after you graduate college, because you get way less attention than you ever did when you were young, flirty, and out every night surrounded by people. You’re just alone more in your mid-twenties and that results in less attention.

And if you’re not going to give yourself the love you need, then no one will. Sure, your coworker will compliment your dress and your mom will tell you that you look pretty today. If you go out with your friends every once in a while, they’ll tell you how great you look and you might get hit on at the bar.

But it’s not a guarantee that you’re going to get the gratification you need, that we all need.

So, take more selfies and learn how to make yourself feel good. Whether you’re slapping on a snapchat filter or taking it from your best angle – do what you have to do to give yourself the attention you need.

We all need a little confidence boost now and again, I’ve never seen taking lots of selfies as a negative thing. If you’re feeling yourself, then snap that pic and hype yourself up. You deserve it.

  1. Although I love this post, I am sooooo self-conscious about selfies. I posted my picture a few weeks ago, but I removed it. Yesterday, I posted a couple of pictures of myself, but they don’t show my face…lol

    I admire people with confidence enough to post selfies. ❀

    1. Gotta use the filters!! lol I have been battling with my selfies lately, I like them then look back at them and think they look weird. So I’ve been doing a lot of half face pictures, but I have to work on my confidence! Baby steps.

  2. Preach it sista! πŸ‘ All my friends give me crap for being a “selfie queen”, but hey, I don’t see a problem in taking a picture if you feel like you look good!

  3. I noticed that its the exact opposite actually of what people say .. The days i feel good about my self, I take more selfies with or without filters… but in general so i can capture the goodness of that moment … but when i am down, i like to ignore it as if the day never occured.
