You have to say "can I live" when you just want to take a selfie of yourself looking on point some days.
When you do work up the nerve to be assertive at work, you have to deal with worrying people think you're being a "bitch."
Society probably hasn't caught up to you yet.
You have to explain why, keeping all things in perspective, you love your body.
You try to look casual in pics when you're really feeling your look — so you end up having this awkward expression on your face:
You have to do a #shameless hashtag on selfies — as though you should be ashamed you look awesome in your new lipstick?
People don't know how to react when you occasionally say something nice about yourself.
Sometimes you need to crop people out of pictures...your daughter for example...and everyone FREAKS.
You have to deal with the frustration that people would be uncomfortable if you answered a compliment on your clothes like this:
You've just started to hit your stride and society decides you're too old.
You have to publicly defend feeling OK in a bikini.
You have to use your pet as a prop just as an excuse to show the world how cute you are (and your pet).
If you don't look completely busted, people don't realize it's still hard work to feel good.
