I’ve been feeling that the pictures I have of myself around the internet are not honest. They were taken a  few years ago and I’ve aged since then. It’s taken me some time and a lot of tapping to actually change them. I was too vain and unloving of myself to accept the real me.

That seems a little odd doesn’t it? Vain and unloving of self? Isn’t that an oxymoron? (Love that word!) Well, I don’t think it is really. Vanity is pride which hasn’t got much to do with love in my opinion.

So I’ve been tapping on myself (using EFT , Emotional Freedom Techniques)

Even though I don’t want to change my picture, but I feel dishonest having pictures up that are not a true representation of how I am now,  I accept how I feel.

Even though I’m too vain to have everyone see me how I am I choose to love myself anyway.

Even though I just don’t love myself, I don’t like the way I look, especially without makeup, I accept that this is the way I feel.

I did think about putting on some makeup before having a photo taken, like the one I’ve had up on this blog since I started, but I don’t own any anymore.

So the tapping worked and I’m going through the internet changing my profile pictures around the internet.

  1. Good for you Patricia! I was posting a bunch of pictures yesterday to a new site and realized that I had put on a few pounds since some of them were taken and a couple are two years old. I had some of the same feelings – as though I was deceiving someone or something. But the other side of the coin is that in life we all have to put our best foot forward. A tricky one!
