Can’t Stand Me?

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/cant-stand-me/

What do you find more unbearable: watching a video of yourself, or listening to a recording of your voice? Why?

In today’s world of taking endless selfie pictures (my husband and I have been taking self-portraits for years…great way to document what we do together!), I would find it hard to think that watching a video of one self is difficult…or unbearable.  It’s a wonderful way to create a quick memory, or take you back to a time of doing something you really enjoyed. On my recent week off of work, we took several photos self-portraits…and when I’m feeling a little down and out, those pictures cheer me right up!

Now…hearing my own voice is something totally different. I hear myself differently than I think I sound. In my many attempts to carry a tune, this is most obvious. I even cringe when having to listen to my own voicemail greeting…as if I really sound like that??? Makes me wonder why people don’t just start laughing when I talk, but I must sound different to them than I do to me.
