    Not Good

    Maybe it's a symptom of my self-hatred but i really hate them, especially when theyre taken by other people. Maybe thats a symptom of my desire for control in a sense. Iiii just think they look nothing like me, possibly because they're ugly... maybe that's a symptom of my...

    Is it normal to absolutely hate how you look in

    pictures but feel that if someone else takes the picture it looks a lot better? It's just a peeve of mine.

    When I look in the mirror everyday,

    I am most often disappointed with my appearance, but every once in awhile I like what I see. But when people take pictures of me, I never like what I see. When I smile or pose I always picture myself in my head as cute. Then I see the photo and hate myself. It's come to the...

    Not Photogenic

    I have always hated having my picture taken, even as a child. I guess I was always afraid of what people would see. I always imagine that people look at the pictures and talk about how awful I look, how fat I am. And I am sure there is some of that. And it doesn't help that my...

    literally cry and feel down for the rest of the day.

    Whenever someone takes a photo of me,

    the picture usually comes out looking incredibly awkward and just bad. I'm never satisfied with how I look in others' photos. I'm just not photogenic :-(

    seriously even though few people say I'm

    beautiful, I just hate my look and I sometimes hate to look at the mirror. I usually hate taking selfies as it makes me feel sad and I avoid cameras even in group pictures

    I used to have a profile picture of myself,

    but the more I looked at it, the more I hated it. I'm not photogenic at all -_-

    Have you ever looked at yourself at a different

    angle? Am I the only one who gets terrified at my own sight? How about videos of yourself? I literally have to look away and close my ears cuz the sound of my own voice is hard to listen to.

    Stop asking for pictures.

    I'm not going to post or send any pictures of myself. I can describe myself to you but that's it. Thank you in advance.

    I am actually disgusted to look at myself.

    And it's really weird, because when I see myself in the mirror or a webcam or a front camera and I'm ALONE, I can build up my self confidence really high. I can believe that I'm beautiful. But when I'm with people in the photo or someone else takes a picture of me, sometimes I...

    I hate being in pictures,

    and I go to great lengths to avoid it. I recently attended my cousin's wedding, and she wanted a picture with all of her cousins, and I didn't want to be a ***** by refusing to be in the picture. Someone posted this picture on Facebook today and I am horrified. Why do I look...

    That Camera Might Break, You Know!

    I absolutely hate seeing pictures of myself. Every photo shows these chubby cheeks and eyes that disappear into tiny slits when i smile. It's even worse when i have photos taken with my sisters as they all have small cute features like my mum and i have this long horse face. I...

    If someone is going to take a picture,

    I normally get out if the way before they do it because I don't like my picture taken unless I ask someone to which is very very rare.

    My family gives me so much crap

    for only posting pictures of my toddler. But I despise my very being when I see a picture of myself. I didn't use to be so self conscious. I don't know what changed

    This is why I rarely ever take selfies

    and avoid taking or being in photos at all costs.

    I don't have many pictures of myself

    even growing up. I'd say I have about a handful from when I was a baby till now. I'm not very photogenic and I try to take pictures of myself to find what's good for me but never do. I am ugly and dark so trying to take a picture of that and making it presentable is not possible...

    and then look at photos of you and think, "so what is the truth?"

    I've never taken a picture of myself.

    when people take pictures of me, i'll make sure they're deleted. the only pictures i have are childhood pictures that my parents refuse to erase, and formal pictures for student cards and stuff
