But then, by mid-afternoon, I noticed something strange…Not a SINGLE person had liked my daily selfie.

Was it the lighting? Did I use too many hashtags? Or did I accidentally post a selfie on 9/11…Again??
Maybe I got shadowbanned from the other day when I commented that one chick was a “shoe-faced whore.”
You know, there’s no reason that someone can’t like an image as they scroll by it. LITERALLY ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS DOUBLE TAP.
Even a shoe-faced whore knows how to hit like on a selfie post. Just saying.
It’s not that my self-esteem is dependent on the serotonin I get when someone likes my pics or responds with a series of heart-eyed emojis. But as it turns out, not having those heart-eyed emojis and comments like “GORG” has caused me to spiral into a body-shaming abyss.
Is it the weight I’ve gained in quarantine? Or the hair I’ve lost? Or my cornucopia of skin issues?
I used a filter! WHAT ELSE DO YOU PEOPLE WANT FROM ME.
I’m going to delete it. Not because no one liked it but because…something else.
I don’t care what other people think. Really I don’t.
But I’m definitely throwing this sweater in the garbage.
