The meaning behind my selfies

I look back at my memories from years ago and I can tell that my smile is not real. I use to put on a pretty big front where I acted like I had everything I wanted in my life. Interestingly enough, I look at pictures now and I am not even trying to fake it- my smile is real! I know people feel selfies may be annoying, or a waste of time and they think- “we know what you look like!” but for me, I post selfies sometimes because I feel good about myself. I feel like my eyes and my smile tell a story, and I love that story.

Do what makes you happy <3 Me <3

    When i was younger I never had this problem. It all started when i got older i hardly even take pictures now is like i have a crocked smile like aint nohing to be happy about i just want a picture, I think is everything i went through when i was younger my face and my body changed so sometimes i do feel like I’m myself and i want to be how i used to be when i was fifteen and younger I’m pretty but i was real pretty when i was younger i think is that I’m older now not that I’m old but i grew up more. soon that will all change because i am looking into getting in a gym and start buying myself nice thins so that even if i look a little different i could still look good.

    Torry – your smile is so genuine and infectious! I love that you are on a mission to love yourself. I think that it is awesome that you have such awareness of how far you have come on your journey.

    Keep the selfies going girl!

    I love the amount of honesty that you always incorporate within your posts. To be completely honest as well, I am like you used to be, struggling to love all parts of me at all times. I do have some moments that the light will shine through and I am able to expose my true self in my photos, the reasons behind my true happiness and smile. Sometimes, though, I still struggle. Nevertheless, I find it hopeful and very helpful that when people close to me like yourself expose the truth behind the scenes it gives me hope and motivation to seek understanding within myself, so thank you for that.
