How many times have I told you your worth is not measured by how flawless your skin looks or how symmetrical your face is? Yet a myriad of thoughts and questions run through your mind every time someone is looking at you while speaking. Perhaps the same thoughts and questions are a nuisance to the person facing you. Perhaps not.
Chances are they are questioning themselves on their appearance. If they are, you have nothing to worry about. If they are not, more power to them. But who are we kidding? Of course they are worried about your perception of them. So why do you still feel self-conscious? Do I need to slap your face every time you think like this? Is that it? Do you need aversion therapy?
Pull yourself together! Or maybe I need to bring out a cat o’ nine tails. That’ll learn you.
One week later…
How many times do I have to tell you to stop worrying about what you look like?
But you know I do because inside this terrarium everything’s shallow.
