this took me aback and i thought i’d share it here on tumblr: i posted this photo of myself and the post-posting comment i made about it got over two thousand likes on facebook. my comments never get such a huge surge of likes. i spent all yesterday thinking about why.
Seeing a real face is uplifting because I can’t stand looking at my own because all the faces I see are photoshopped.
this reminds me of a comment i heard at the lorde concert last night. there were three girls behind me, probably all about 19 or 20….which is to say: her age.
one of them shrieked “FUCK!!!! LORDE IS PERFECT!!! I FUCKING HATE MYSELF!!”
and i thought….why does one have to mean the other?
