Ears Too Big? It's All in Your Head

People with body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) hate the way they look. Brain-imaging study of BDD patients shows that the condition is not an emotional problem. Rather, their brains are presenting them with skewed images of themselves.

I've read about this a long time ago and it facinates me!
As I see myself I'm run of the mill & ordinary and this attitude is acceptable and compfortable to me. Of course while grow up I thought I was ugly as sin but plowed on no matter what what.
I'm very proud of the fact I have two great looking kids as far as looks go.................Genetics can be so kind at times!! lol.....................

So how I see others just might be all in my head as much as what these poor souls see in themselves. But, it seems such a waste to worry/fret over such a thing as looks. As trite as it sounds it is what the person is like in his or her soul that truly counts.

PLANT LIFE....................PLANT TREES....................
