Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

How you see yourself vs. how others see you

See what happens when two ppl describe the same person to a sketch artist. One of them is the person actually being sketched out. They describe themselves to the artist, critically I might add. The other is a person that was asked to interact with them prior to the description.

At the end, the artist reveals 2 drawings to the person he sketched. The self description almost always looks dowdy and frumpy. The next one is what the observer saw. Take a look.



After watching the video, how do you see yourself? Do you see yourself with critical eyes still? We for the most part are our harshest critics. We see flaws that nobody else (or the naked eye for that matter) can see. No matter the negative feelings you have about your appearance, know that YOU ARE MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN YOU KNOW! 


ETA-

Please share this video via whichever social media you use. It might brighten somebody's day :)

I am probably just as ugly to everyone else as I believe I am

Oh, fuck off.

If that is your picture, you're beautiful.

Don't be ridiculous.

Darlin' the majority of us are, but know that you are not alone nor are you as bad off as you think.

Feel beautiful today and every day :)

To be almost 38 with two kids, I know I have a nice body.  There are a few things I'll be changing when I'm financially able, but for the most part, I'm happy with how I look.  I've seen way worse.

I thought about making a post similar to this. Post a pic, describe yourself as you see yourself then have others describe how they see you. But in this group?? It would turn into a blood bath!
