pic #1: I spent a half hour curling my hair and ages doing my makeup in ways I didn’t even like to achieve a look I wasn’t really going for.
self confidence level: 1-4
pic #2: I literally spent five minutes putting makeup on. You can tell I did nothing to my hair. I love this picture and am happy with my look.
self confidence level: 7-9
Wearing more noticeable makeup does not make you more insecure. Dying your hair another colour doesn’t either. Wearing more fitting clothing doesn’t. Taking more pictures of yourself definitely doesn’t.
Society is too closed minded, like the concept of itself is. That’s just the way it is set up. Can we all just assume we know nothing at all and erase everything we think is true and look at everything from a state of acceptance that our thoughts could be wrong? And not label somebody as something and act as if you’re superior to the way they think just because of the things that something as black and white as society has taught you?
I’m not hating on our society. I’m hating on the concept of it itself.
(disclaimer: there are bright lights flashing at an extremely pale person, but if you did see me you would think I am wearing MUCH more makeup in the second picture. it was v subtle in the first)
