Have you ever looked at a pic of yourself and thought....

 OMFG that's what people see?!  I had a root canal on my top front baby tooth as a child and as a result my adult tooth has always been slightly discolored, but I never thought it was really noticeable.  I was looking at pics last night from my Nikon and it's freaking horrible.  I seriously cried and now all I can think about it is how I am going to pay for a porcelain veneer. GRRRR.

This is exactally why I don't have a lot of family photo's on hand.  It took a LOT of guts for me to have pictures taken on our last family vacation....when I looked at them I kept telling myself that I still looked like a fat cow despite loosing 10lbs.  There is one person who doesn't see me that way though and him telling me that he think's I'm beautiful helps with my insecurities.

I think we focus on the negative - and, we see faults in our selves that others never do.

Don't be harsh on yourself. You're a beautiful woman.

I am going to go with this.
I have a really hard time with this though- especially in pictures. I can see even the smallest imperfection. My husband hates.

Thanks ladies.

I pick at pics of myself now and then but it doesn't normally get to me.  I can change other things, work out more, wear more flattering clothes, etc. But my teeth are different.  It's not an easy cheap fix and the fact that I didn't even notice it before irritates me.

I have a tooth that sticks out. In certain angles it look ridiculous. I think I may have one... I will share it if I find it. Maybe it will make you feel better, lol
