There comes a time in every girl's life when she wonders
What would I look like with bangs?
Yeah.
Be adventurous. Be spontaneous.
Just do it.
Just do it.
Just do it.
JUST DO IT!
Never cut your own bangs!
I learned this lesson
THREE times.
Lots of regrets you guys.
Don't do it. Just see a professional, phone a friend.
But anyway, I always have this moment.
*gasps* *non-diegetic twinkles*
Oh my gosh
Am I gorgeous?
Which is immediately followed by
*dramatic sound effects that increases in intensity*
Obviously these are very conflicting feelings and you might wonder
How could anyone possibly feel these two extremes back-to-back?
Well, I had the same question. So I did what any one of us would do
And I was surprised to find this gem of an article.
If you have time, you should read it because not only is it hilarious
but it felt like I was reading a play-by-play of what I had just gone through then
and my entire life
So I was like, oh wow, okay
Is this just like a normal phenomenon?
So I group texted a bunch of my friends to see if they sometimes felt this way and they all said
Oh totally
Goblin to supermodel All the time
My dysmorphia is usually fat and strange-looking to sexy badass
I can just hear my mom's voice in my head saying, "Girls like us are an acquired taste."
Oh, I have more I'm a mole person days than gorgeous days
I'm pretty horrible to myself
Why do we oscillate between these feelings? Why do we feel things?
And so I was just like relentlessly searching the internet
And I found one theory that proposed
Specifically for women, that I found super fascinating
Is that we are actually
More attractive when we're ovulating
Because of our hormones during this time, our faces and our voices will actually change
And reach peak attractiveness to the opposite sex when we are our most fertile.
So next time your friend gets hit on
*whispers* You're ovulating
What?
You are so fertile right now
What?
The men can sense that your estradiol levels are high
Or your progesterone levels are simultaneously low
Which is late in the follicular phase, near ovulation when fertility is highest.
What?
But I'm on hormonal birth control
Which means my body already thinks it's eggo is prego
So this explanation felt like it didn't apply to the swinging pendulum of perception of my own face
So after a lot of googling, I realized it can only be
Just part of the human experience
There's no salt for this.
Life is a rollercoaster.
Sometimes you look good. Sometimes you look terrible
Most times
Ya probably look fine.
Sorry John.
Our reflections are not objective, right?
We're seeing them through the lens of whatever our current mind state is
I'm a monster
Which fluctuates all the time
I'm an angel
So instead of indulging in either
The arrogance of beauty or the sadness of hideousness
I ask myself instead,
Hmm. What is going on internally that is making me feel this way?
And if I feel good, and therefore see myself as good, great!
And if I feel terrible and see myself as terrible,
Well, how can I emotionally adjust so that I'm not repulsed by my own reflection?
Puberty was not kind to me
I'm Anna Akana
You probably look fine.
Thank you to Audible for sponsoring today's episode
I am very excited to recommend an absolutely remarkable book today
So I read about 70 books a year

Sometimes more, depending on LA traffic and how often I'll face my overflowing laundry
But in 2018, my favorite book without a doubt was Hank Green's
'An Absolutely Remarkable Thing'
It's somehow coming-of-age,
Sci-fi and accurately represents the moral struggles of being a digital personality
Plus the protagonist is bi
