Just so everybody knows, the mirror is actually more reliable than the camera. Even though people say “the camera never lies”, it distorts your photographs a little bit. It has to turn a 3d image (you in real life) to a 2d image (a photograph) and consequently skews the proportions a little bit.

Also, “photogenic” is a real thing. Certain faces photograph well and others don’t. It’s all down the angles, proportions and size of your features.

Have you ever seen someone stunning who looks great in professional photographs and not in candids? Yeah, that’s because there’s a huge difference between a professional and an amateur. Professionals know how to minimise the issues cameras have. Lighting, angles and even the distance you are away from the camera plays a part (the amount of distortion varies depending on how close you are).

TL;DR if you think you look great in the mirror but not in the photo, trust the mirror. You look great!

NOT ONLY THAT, but when you look in a mirror, you’re seeing your face in motion, how others would see it. In a photograph, you’re still, and it can make small flaws and the like seem a lot more prominent, despite them being quite minuscule in person.

Also! Also, when you see yourself in the mirror you are looking at you face reverse of how a camera pics it up. No face is perfectly symmetrical so you get so used to seeing a mirrored version of your face that when it’s flipped in a picture you subconsciously notice the tiny differences in your face and thus you think you don’t look right.

Sleep Paralysis is when you’re conscious but can’t move your body. 

Sleep paralysis can be REALLY scary but don’t worry it’s not anything supernatural. REM sleep is another name for the state of sleep when you’re dreaming. Muscles are turned off during this time. Usually you’re supposed to wake up after the REM sleep cycle is done, but sometimes people wake up in the middle of it. Because muscles are turned off one can’t move. All the “ghostly presence” felt are all literally hallucinations, conjured up by the part of your brain that still thinks it’s dreaming.

Me and many others suffer from sleep paralysis. And it’s horrific. But remember, it’s NOT real. So next time, don’t be afraid.
