I hate selfies. I always feel awkward while trying not to look stupid. And I don't wanna give the impression of being too self-centered.
And then I look at the photo and think "that's me?" and in this moment I am looking at myself from another point of view, thinking about what others might see in me, might think of me. And I am not self-centered anymore but an observer, analysing myself like I do with others.
Such a change of perspective is really helpful from time to time. It lets me see my faults clearly and it also often shows me: stop over thinking. You are so hard in yourself. And you constantly think about, what others think of you. And you imagine them judging you harshly. In reality, however, they don't care at all. They got their own problems to carry and their own bit of self-awareness. So it's okay if you think about yourself from time to time. And it certainly doesn't hurt taking a selfie.
