How can people stand to look at themselves

in photos, videos, mirrors?

My therapist wants to do video sessions so we can try EMDR. And I'd like to make YT videos about some of the things I have rolling around in my head, because no one reads articles anymore. And I'd like to be able to share photos with my friend. And I'd like to learn how to do makeup and stuff. But I just can't seem to get over this hurdle. I've been sitting here for the last hour trying to get myself to look in the mirror and my brain is just like, "No, we're not doing that."

I told my therapist I'd think about it, but idk if I can do it. I need the EMDR to do the video conferencing. I can't do it the other way around. It's like she's asking me to get better so she can start doing therapy. If I could do video conferencing I wouldn't have gotten a therapist, ffs. It's literally the reason I went to the clinic.

Beauty isn't everything. It's the only thing.
