Can you look at yourself long enough to make a self-portrait?

Today I realized that you will be able to draw your portrait when you are well enough to look at yourself. I always wanted to start making self-portraits but I never knew why I wasn’t finding time to start. Now I realized that I was not well enough to look at myself, deep into my eyes and my soul.

I was in a meeting today and I was so bored that I started drawing. It was the first time I was comfortable with watching myself, on video. It is not a wonderful drawing, a piece of art but it’s a small step in my healing. I will focus more in the following days, maybe after the holiday, to make some self-portraits.

The High 5 habit book really does miracles. 

Can you look at yourself long enough to make a sketch?
