Well, I Felt Ugly, Anyway

Recently I was trying to figure out my new camera, and trying to re-adjust the color and light settings because the color looked very "off". So I was sending pics to a friend of mine so that he (an amateur photographer) could suggest the adjustments I should make.

After a few pics, he goes, "Is your face really *that* red?"

Well, maybe it was harmless and he meant nothing by it. but little comments like that simply devastate my self-esteem. I have very fair Scottish skin. I wear sunblock, but still, my face gets more sun than the rest of my body and it's going to naturally get a bit redder than the rest of me. I had no idea it made me look like some kind of freak.

I know it sounds like I'm being incredibly stupid. I just need to write about these things sometimes, to get the negativity out of me.
