On this first throwback Thursday of February 2017, I am reminded of how much I hate the Facebook timehop feature.
I really want to know why Facebook thinks that it’s necessary to remind me that being stylish was not always a thing for me, my teeth were a bit spacey before invisaline braces, and that and my hair … well my hair always looked nice for the most part, but that’s not the point.
Don’t get me wrong. I feel like I have a good level of self esteem, but I now take pride in my appearance, and I know from whence I’ve come. Furthermore, I have no desire to remind the world of how my eyebrows used to connect in the middle of my head like the batman signal.
So, Facebook do us all a favor and stop reminding of all of our dark days in fashion.
Now that I’m thinking about it, the only people who benefit from the timehop feature are babies. In ten year’s they’ll look back and see their cute baby pictures, whereas I’ll still be wondering how I managed to wear mismatched socks with flip flops, and oversize clothing for much of my early 20s.
Thank God for growth!
