Watching self on TV is weird

Just saw the video of my interview on local TV. I think I did well and the message was uplifting and empowering.

But as I watched it, I thought "Do I really look like that?" "The camera really does add 10 pounds (and double chins)" "My face is so wide, and flat, and shiny" and "Do I really sound like that?"

Now, I generally have a very healthy self-esteem, but seeing myself on TV, I fixated on how I didn't like how I looked, instead of thinking "Damn right I do good work!"

After dinner, through the magic of the internet, I went back to the news station's website and watched the video again. It was still weird, but the shock wore off enough for me to watch for the message.

All in all, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.
