I Dont Like My Pictures Taken

    'Smile for the camera' I used to oblige

    as a little girl. Growing up as an awkward teen conscious of my body, I hated taking pictures. Now, taking pictures just means too much risk. There is always an agenda for that picture. Maybe it is to promote an event. Maybe it is to add credence to what the writer is saying...

    It's not that I don't like it,

    I absolutely hate it. It make me feel uncomfortable and I always look like I was dragged backwards through a hedge and then hit in the face with a sledgehammer, repeatedly. I don't know why it always looks so awful. To be honest I'm not much to look at in reality so I'm not that...

    When I look in the mirror I think I look okay .

    But when I get a picture taken I look so different and ugly. I hate it so much. I'm not photogenic. :/

    despite all the pix I do take.

    ...I really do not like having my picture taken. sometimes me taking an obsessive amount of pics is my way of getting over the fact that I don't like my pictures taken.

    I've always been camera shy.

    Picture day at school was an ordeal, and I hated the formality of it. Hell, even taking my senior portrait for my yearbook wasn't an experience I even wanted to do, nor would I repeat. It's not that I think I'm ugly in photos, I just think there are better things to take...

    unless I'm the one who take it.

    makes me uncomfortable when other take a photo of me... And feel very bothered when they share to other people or social media...

    It feels weird and I really don't think I'm

    worth it. Tho there's someone who has been changing my perspective but I still don't like them to be shared publically

    I have been labelled

    as 'snobbish' because I have refused to be in pictures at the workplace. I feel like telling them - I signed up to teach. I did not sign up to be a model or an actress. I am very private and I even hate it when students recognise me at the mall or have my hair cut at the saloon...

    It's not an insecurity thing,

    as such..I don't think, anyway. I just don't like it. It's awkward. & I used to model for someone. HATED it.

    I must admit that I don't like having my picture taken. I can't explain why. I just don't.

    I hate being looked at,

    and what do people do with pictures? Look at them. Stare at them. I can feel their eyes on me.
