I discovered something really odd about my facial dysphoria issues.
If I take an actress who i consider super attractive, and look at photos of her im like "wow shes hot, maybe some are less flattering but still smoking gosh"
But then if i imagine that her face is my own and look back at the photos my brain starts to go "Ugh no, this angle is the one we hate, i look awful, oh god no not that one" and i start to pick apart the bits of me i get dysphoric over
Well done brain.
