My mobile phone Home screen

I've never believed that I appreciate myself enough. I mean I say "I'm amazing" now and then but sometimes I don't feel like they come from a place of truth. I give myself compliments but right after that, I question myself and my worth.

Up until this year, I've never used my picture on my phone or laptop as a wallpaper. My self-doubt makes me question whether I want people to see my face the moment they hold my phone. I feel shy and uncomfortable. It's also why I hardly take pictures. I have nothing to show.

That image on my phone screen was taken a few days before my 23rd birthday. I had gone through a lot of stress to get that photoshoot done. And I was pleased with the outcome. Although my skin is a lot brighter than that, I loved the dark tone the photographer gave it. Don't get me wrong, I love my fair skin. I just love the idea of seeing how I would look if I were darker. The outcome is still amazing.

I decided to use that image because I bought my phone by myself. It was a huge feat for me. I didn't feel indebted to anyone when I got the phone. My parents didn't know I planned on getting the phone. It was all me (a little from my brother though). That was my first major expensive purchase. I was happy with myself so I decided to own it completely.

I got this phone with my money so absolutely no one has a say on what goes in or out or on my phone. I put my picture up there and when someone complains about how dark I look, I remind them that it's my property and my decision.

It's been a long time coming. I'm proud of myself, always.

Thanks for reading

Wow, a professional 'selfie'? You look great and project a sense of confidence and professionalism in that picture.
Doing my own selfies usually end up contrived and fake-ish so I have to be lucky to get a decent shot of myself.

Thanks for entering @young-boss-karin ❤️

I always have a way of putting up a serious face often and I guess it gives people the impression that I'm confident when it's a constant battle. I bet your selfies look great too.

I hardly smile in a picture.
Because I own and write about Precious metals I don't share my identity in the open. And that makes me a target for criminal opportunists. And because of my past relationship I was advised not to be on any social media. Few people I trust have a picture(s) of me. I may share in a more private platform.

You look way more beautiful than in my imagination... Boss lady. I hail 🙌🙌.

And i know the feeling that comes with such achievements. I felt so proud when I gave my mom the first 50K ever all from my hard work.

Goodluck in the contest Dushn'ka (Russian for Sweetheart).

Thanks love. The good thing about giving to parents is the fact that the amount doesn't matter. They just want to know that you can thinj about them and gove of your own free will. It's an amazing feeling.

If that is you, wow! I really admire that tone of your skin and you are so beautiful. I don't think I can be shy to not allow people see my picture 😁😁 I love it and I really admire myself. There is this great feeling we have when we buy something for ourselves especially phone. We see it as an achievement when no one gets it for us. Good luck in this Contest.
