Hey Brian! 15 years wow ...but that is awesome. I like your picture, it is real. You genuinely look happy. Mine ,you can see my smiles are fake.I hate taking pictures. I always get the "why don't you smile" in your pictures . Congrats on posting it up. I appreciate to see the faces to whom I spill my guts out to. You have really encouraged me. Hope you have a good day tomorrow!

I hate taking photos too...just don't like the way I look in them lol. But I figured, why not smile? People are more likely to say hi to you if you're smiling. Still need to take a better one though...the lighting is terrible lol

I have no idea how to take a decent "selfie" and have not succeeded. YOU DID! Great happy face photo.

I know.......30 years of emotional abuse and negative self-talk can do that to ya.......But I'm learning to temper it with positive thoughts :)

Didn't mean for you to have to worry about my response or your answer...it was just meant that like the rest of just about anyone in this world, we tend to find something wrong in our appearance.....I didn't pick up on the double chin.....just saw a great happy face! So maybe that's what people notice first about you in person, and you never really knew that! :)
