Why Do We Do This To Ourselves?

These pictures were taken the same day, 1 minute apart.  I turned on my phone to take a picture of something and it was turned toward me.  It looked so horrible that I had to snap a photo.
 
Then I turned it around and took this one, and overprocessed it.  Why do we look at horrible photos of ourselves and get depressed?  It's literally just one moment in time, in a bad light, or in a bad angle.  Yet we look at it and think, "YEP!  I'm hideous.  I KNEW it."
I think we need to be nicer to ourselves.

Also, phone cameras need to shut off if you turn them on at such unattractive angles so you don't look at the phone and say, "Ugh."  But I'm just dreaming there.
