Self image


Self image problems symptoms

What are the symptoms of self image problems?

Do you dislike your looks or feel uncomfortable because of your body shape?
Do you think that a certain feature in your face or body looks really bad and must be changed?
Do you think that people judge you negatively because of your looks?

Thoughts like these come to the minds of almost everyone but when these thoughts become obsessive to the extent that they affect social interactions then its a clear symptom of a self image problem.

How self image problems affect social interactions

A person who is not satisfied with his looks usually becomes obsessed with his external appearance when being present with people. This obsession results in two major problems:

The first problem is that the person finds it hard to concentrate during conversations with strangers which affects his social performance and deteriorates his self confidence even more.

The second problem that happens to a person with a self image problem is that when he believes that something is wrong about his looks he usually incorrectly interprets the facial expressions and the gestures of others to further solidify his false beliefs about his appearance.

So one of the common symptoms of a self image problem is finding yourself obsessed with your looks to the extent that you become distracted while talking to people especially strangers.

How to deal with self image problems?

People who have self image problems usually have a different mental image of themselves than the image other people see.

Its not usual for a handsome person to believe that he looks ordinary or even ugly under the effect of his self image problem!

Self image problems treatment

The key point in treating a self image problem is getting rid of the false beliefs you have about your looks and replacing them with beliefs that matches reality.

The truth is that most people are more attractive than they think. People usually never notice the small imperfections you are obsessed with and most of your perceived defects doesn’t exist except in your imagination!! 

 attractiveness is perspective dependent. A person might find you looking normal while another one might find you very attractive.

The question is, how can you get rid of a hard coded belief that states that you are ugly or deformed??? Lets first examine the possible sources of this belief.

  • You may have received excessive criticism when you were a little kid and as a result you thought that you don’t look good. For example the word “Dumb” might have been interpreted by your mind as “looking dumb”
  • I am sure you are not photogenic and that you look horrible in pictures. Which is another source that feeds your false beliefs about your looks
  • No one likes you, no one complemented your looks before and you were rejected a few times

Getting rid of these beliefs

As for the photogenic looks you must first understand that people who look beautiful in pictures might not be beautiful at all in real life while people who look ugly in pictures might not be ugly at all.

When someone sees you in real life he sees your 3D features because he uses both eyes to look at you but when a camera takes a picture of you it gives a 2D image that omits lots of your real features!!

That’s why you might appear ugly in pictures even though you are attractive, some people are lucky enough to appear attractive in the 2D and 3D forms while others only look Good in the 3D form.

Next I want you to learn about the body language attraction signs and to keep your eye on them. While doing so you will start to discover that lots of the members of the other sex are actually sending you attraction signals that you were never aware of!! The rejection you got might have had other reasons behind it but why would anyone send you such signals if he was not attracted to you??

After you collect enough data document them in a sheet and read it everyday to remind yourself that you are a really attractive person. Sooner or later the false belief about your looks will collapse and you will be free of self image issues. has recently released a  book Beat Social Media Addiction the book that will  help you to know how  Social Media Taken Over Your Life?Or Worse…  and Beat Social Media Addiction book is a 100% guarantee that you will get Your Life back from Social Networking  addiction like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram  …..else  you will be refunded.
