Think of it like this. Say you are making a painting and it is in a gallery for sale. People look at it and tell you, it is a beautiful painting and it is great, etc. Most won't see any flaws, very few see minor flaws but overlook them and still find the painting beautiful and amazing. (Sorry MattB I know the word is over used..lol) But when you look at it, all you see are the errors you made that make it imperfect.

It is just that want of being perfect that I think everyone has. It is what I call that "I wish....." factor. You know, the I wish my hair was straighter/curly/blond/black... or I wish I had wider/smaller hips, lips, boobs..
Haha, you are probably right. I'm definitely familiar with the idea that many of us are our own worst critics. I just find it a bit exasperating that my wife can spontaneously tell another BBW how beautiful she is. I'm talking a complete stranger she'll randomly compliment, then turn around and see her own reflection in the mirror and groan.
