    How do you see yourself when you stare in a mirror?

    you're not fully there? Fantasy? Dead? Alive? Beautiful? Ugly?
    Whatever you see of yourself...

    It shocks me that I have an image. I spent much of the day solitary, so when I walk past a mirror, it reminds me I am still alive. I can't believe I still have all my hair. Nice mirror.

    Honestly, I don't usually see myself. I am always looking at my hair, making sure the part is straight, or looking at my teeth, making sure there is not any gunk between them. Now, mind you, this is all very quickly of course as I have my three children running rampant in the house as I am getting myself ready in the 3 minutes that I have left for myself in my morning routine. (exaggerated a bit but not much) Once in a very great while I might actually look at myself after a good cry and see my eyes, but even during those times, I see a lost person. A girl who doesn't really know who she is at this time other than a wife, mom, employee, student, and housekeeper. Who is the real Melissa? I don't know. She used to be someone who wanted to run free in a field of sunflowers with a sundress on swinging around with her arms spread out and her long dark hair blowing in the wind. You know, the way they show it in the movies. She used to be this girl who believed all was good in the world if people chose for it to be good. She used to be this girl who knew for sure that true love would conquer all and that people who made mistakes were just stupid and should be disregarded because no mistake can be forgot, much less forgiven. She used to be this person who was so sure of the timeline of life and what was to be expected at any given moment. But, you see, you are asking who I see now. Looking in the mirror today, well, I don't know. I truly don't know.

    Ugly. Meaningless, piece of crap. Dead to the world around me. Like no matter what I do, I'll never be good enough to make so much as a speck of a mark in this caotic world where everyone around me can spit in my direction and hit me square in the eyes so that I am blinded by the world itself and doomed to fall every time I try to be a better person than I know I can be. But then I look past that and realize that I am flawed in my reflection of my own truth because I am my biggest truth sayer and liar at the same time. Judge and jury in a trial of love and hate alike. And I am to be hung for both.

    Some days I look in the mirror and see rather unremarkable face.  Other days I think I am very good looking.  I try not to look into mirrors in the mornings, until it is time to shave.  (I shudder at morning face.)  Everytime, I see myself and realize that I need some fashion help.

    It's easy to see all the imperfections when I look too closely.  On off days I see the lines in my face and the random gray hairs that stand out.  On other days I catch my green eyes in the mirror and they sparkle so that makes me smile.

    You see yourself from your better side by which I mean the one you think is better. A look in a mirror gives us the opposite view of a photograph. This is the reason why most people don't like to see photos of themselves. They are more used to seeing themselves in a mirror and are subconsciously confused when looking at an image.
    The other thing you see is slightly more green than in real life. You can test this by holding two mirrors against each other so you can see "infinity". The further away a reflection is, the more green you are able to see.
    So you see a slightly green version of yourself which you like the most of all of your images.
