I'm not sure about your facebook page because I don't know who your friends are but no one on this site would say anything mean if you decided to update your picture.
But it's completely up to you

Every heartbreak we go through makes us the perfect person for our soulmates. Shaping us into what they've always been looking for.

Need to talk, PM me.

To people(like me) who think asking for help annoys people I say:
It would bother me if you DIDN'T ask for help.

I don't even have a picture of myself on FB. I have a profile picture of something random and I've never changed it since the day I've had it. It just depends on what you're comfortable with. If you're not comfortable with a picture don't put it up, sometimes you can always just change it to a random picture of whatever. If people dislike it, tough on them, it's your choice.

If you want to update your profile picture, I think you should. If someone is going to make mean comments because of what your picture is, they're not really true friends to begin with. But, if you don't feel comfortable you don't have to. You should be fine.

I've been in a similar position before. See, I used to get cyberbullied, through Facebook a lot of the time, so even now when I only actually have TH people as friends, I have an irrational fear of posting anything on there.

I agree with everyone else. If you feel comfortable doing it, do it. If not, you don't have to update it.
