I took a selfie today, and for the first time, I was uneasy about the size and anatomy of my nose. I was one introspective session away from being profoundly insecure. This was a problem, as I wanted to share the picture on Instagram.
To share, or not to share: that was the question:
Whether tis easier for me to accept
The pleasures of satisfactory ‘likes’
Or to hide behind the splendour of filters
Yes, I just remixed Shakespeare. I eventually shared the picture, but couldn’t help but wonder why after all these years, I was suddenly quite uncomfortable with my nose. Sudden vanity? or subconscious insecurity cruelly awakening?
