I don't know what it is, but even when I have tried taking a selfie by myself, completely alone, I feel so cringe.
I couldn't imagine taking a selfie with other people around. What kind of mindset are people putting themselves in when they take selfies? I feel too vain when I take selfies For Christmas get her a photo session so she can have some nice ones. As a mom, we love pictures!
And photographers are pros at getting the good ones! The only reason I can stomach the occasional picture is so my kids know what I looked like back in the day because my parents have hardly any pictures from their youth and It makes it harder to connect You just gotta not give a fuck what other people think. I have this problem too.
If I'm feeling particularly confident and attractive, then yeah I kinda wanna post a selfie. Who cares if it's for attention - it's human nature to want to attract positive attention sometimes.
So who fucking cares if someone thinks "omg Stacy just wants attention from her selfie" like yeah maybe Stacy is fucking depressed and wants some positive attention who fucking cares. I used to as well.
But recently I started taking selfies to show off my weird graphic t shirt collection fish with gun, raccoon with "eat trash hail Satan", etc. I'm a dancer so most of my pics and videos of me are me dancing and I just want pictures of me doing other things. For myself and for my family. Counter point: You are literally the only person you don't have a choice about spending the rest of your life with.
It's okay to like yourself: And it's okay to think you look good! Great even sometimes. As long as it doesn't become the main way you determine your self value, you're fine. Everything in moderation.
Even vanity. She gets on me about not having pictures of me. Take some selfies. Send them to your Mum. She will love them :. Or dating profiles.
Almost everything I have are group photos. I thought I had like 10 pictures of myself until my 20th birthday when my mom made a collage of all my pictures.
The front of the internet
You rarely hear the word "vain" anymore, or "conceited. The line between confidence and vanity has disappeared at this point. My mom makes my daughter take sneaky photos of me to send to her. I just can't bring myself to take selfies either.
Hate them. Same here.

If people think you're good at taking photos they won't question it when you volunteer to take it instead of being in the photo. Anybody else feel super cringey when taking selfies and therefore take none? Posted by 1 year ago. Sort by: best. View discussions in 2 other communities. Continue this thread. I hate that gift.
