Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi. Welcome. I am a Licensed Master Social Worker with more than 20 years experience working with individuals and families on a variety of issues.
Good morning. As a woman we all can feel quite hypercritical about her image and feel quite self conscious about how we look.
It is as if there will never be a photo that she is totally satisfied with as she sees "imperfections" that others dont see but that she feels exist.
Even with outside priase or reassurance if the distortion exists the positive feedback doesn't always make it through.
I do think it is lovely that you want to share the photos of the two of you and you want the flexibility to do so. You are doing the right thing by including her in the process and asking her to offer one or two that she can feel okay about you sharing.
I will wait for you to come online so we can chat further.
