“So have you seen what she looks like?” I ask.
“No, just her boobs, from the picture she sent “Johnny.”
In a world where everything is instantaneous, thanks to the Internet, it’s disturbing to know that some of what is being sent out into the cyber world are Selfies. But not just Selfies of girls smiling while holding their kitten, or Selfies at a restaurant, or in the car wearing goofy glasses, etc. No, these aren’t those kinds of Selfies.
The Selfies to which I am referring are of girls without their tops; girls with their boobs hanging out in all their glory, and then sent via text or emailed to guys, who then forward them to their buddies. So now you’ve just become a pair of boobs passed around for the world to drool over. Does that sound like something you want to do? Do you want to be known for your breasts? If so, what happens, God forbid, if they need to be removed one day for health reasons?
You are more than your boobs! You don’t want the kind of guy who asks for a Selfie of you half naked. Maybe your guy isn’t the one asking. Perhaps you’re just offering, because you’re such a nice girlfriend.
Why are these revealing pictures being sent out? Good question.
I don’t know if there’s one good answer, but some possible explanations may include a need for validation, to make your boyfriends happy, to fish for compliments, to get guys to want you, etc., none of which seem a good enough reason to get your ladies out for the world to see.
Respect yourself! You are worth so much more than that. You don’t need to show all your wears to get someone to like you, or want to be with you.
I ask you this: If it were your daughter doing this, what would your response be? Would you say, “Go ahead, honey. I’ll even take the picture for you!” Or, would your response be pure outrage? “No daughter of mine is going to send a picture of herself naked to some guy who’s going to end up sharing it on-line!”
You may not have a daughter at this time in your life, but you are someone’s daughter.
Increase your worth. Respect yourself. Have someone want you for you, not for your cup size.
In the long run you’ll be happy you did.
