Cell phones are very convenient ways to take pictures, and they come with tons of apps that let you adjust all kinds of settings and filters to make the subject look the way you want it to be seen. But THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS star Beth Maitland (Traci) shared an unfiltered selfie that she took of herself on X/Twitter in order to illustrate her inspirational message to fans about growing older.

“Some rainy days I look in the mirror and see all the wrinkles and sun spots and blemishes and lines,” she wrote. “And then I remember how I got them. All the sunny days and laughter and tears. The growing through change and pain and loss. The joy of triumph and surprise.” She concluded with: “Hey, let it rain.”
