What is it about your mirror reflection that you dislike the most?
Also, does that thing differ greatly from the way others see it?
The fact that each an everytime we look at ourselves we look different. Our perceptions change depending on our mood and attitude. Sometimes we feel great and see ourselves as not bad looking at all; other times we feel like ahunchback with one mangled foot dragging behind us.
I believe our world is as we perceive it, so it's more abouit our attitudes than any reality.
Cool question. The fact that our faces are not perfectly symmetrical, so the mirror does not show exactly what we look like when we look at our reflections. True story, and perhaps a very telling one in more ways than one; speaknig metaphorically.

I'm starting to get happier with each look again and that makes me smile.
I dislike the fact that the guy on the other side copies everything I do.

I want to start a discussion because, frankly I feel as though low self-esteem is a major problem today. 1. How did you overcome low self-esteem? 2. Do feel that by being a Christian aids in the recovery from suffering from low self-esteem? 3. Do you feel that praising children encourages that...

Why do we care so much about what others think of us?What we say, what is said about us, what we wear, what we eat... There are so many campaigns with the slogan to just "be yourself", and yet, we still seem to get trapped in this cycle of constantly worrying about what other people think...
