Remember Afrobella’s words of wisdom? You know. From a few posts ago…
These days–for reasons that I don’t care to get into–I know that on some level I’m supposed to be preoccupied with my “brand”. I’ve tried picking a photo of myself and sticking it on every social media site that I own. However, lately something’s come over me.
I don’t want the life that I live to be all about me.
…This feeling has come at an interesting time. In spite of this sudden desire for modesty, lately I feel as though I’ve been learning to truly appreciate myself.
Yet not too long ago I was looking at one of my pics. And I couldn’t stand seeing it.
I know what I look like. My friends have seen me before.
Maybe it was the shot.
But there’s a fine line between subtle self-promotion and being self-serving. And I intend to figure it out.
