Every once in a while we look in the mirror and our brain is just like: ‘I look like sh*t!’ You haven’t washed your hair in days, the bags under your eyes have bags of their own and your smile just isn’t working. Your brain might be right, but at least the mirror didn’t break. That would have been really humiliating. We all know the feeling. My advice? Go back to bed!
Apparently mirrors never lie. I didn’t know mirrors could speak at all, but that’s beside the point. I don’t even want to write this post about mirrors. (Have you guys also realized I do that a lot? Talk about something I don’t even want to talk about.) The thing is I don’t think mirrors are our worst critics. The real evil is the camera on your phone. Remember when we had only one camera on our phone and the quality wasn’t flattering at all? Yeah, those were the good days. Everybody looked like sh*t. But that wasn’t enough. We just had to have two camera’s on our phone. One to take what I like to call nature-pictures and one to take selfies!
This is where it gets fun. You have this swap camera icon on your phone. You know which one I mean.
When you switch the camera to the selfie-camera you can enjoy your pretty face, take a cute duckface picture and upload it to Instagram! Everybody happy! You close your camera app and forget all about it.
So what happens next? Well, you see this cute little bunny hopping around and you just have to take a picture and share this cute bunny with the rest of the world. It would be selfish not to. So you get your phone, turn on the camera and almost drop your phone instantly, because your horrid face is staring back at you. Who was that crazy creature? In no way does your face look flattering when you open your camera and the selfie-camera is on! Never should you see your own face unless it’s already in selfie-taking-mode. I hate it when that happens.
Have a nice Wednesday.
