    I see as myself when looking in the mirror a great man who loves his family and willing to do anything to take care of them. But if i look closer i can see a great poet, a spiritual warrior that was to put on earth for the very purpose of enlightening people of the misconseption and lies that being taught in religion from all around the world

    When I look in the mirror...I see myself overcome with negativity when I see other's flourish or when they turn sour towards me and would like to change that perspective about myself since; I can see that hinders my progress since mind keeps revolving around them and I don't want to waste my time and energy on such things!

    I see a reflection of myself.  Reflection is the change in direction of a wavefront at an interface between two different media so that the wavefront returns into the medium from which it originated. wink

    Maybe it is just my imagination or I'm being narcissistic. 
    But that's how I see myself. We should always be the one who instill positivity within ourselves.

    I no longer look in the mirror as I do not recognize the aging person that I see. I feel no different than I did 40 years ago and expect to feel just the same for at least another 20 years.

    Knowing that I am a CHILD OF GOD should make me see the BEST IMAGE ever when I look in the mirror.  However, because of the trials of this world, sometimes I don't see what I should see but the image that the world has painted of me.  We need to overcome the world and remember who we really are.  I want to see the image of God in my mirror because He is my Father and I was created in His image.

    I see a broken image. Each piece in the image is separate of itself. Some broken pieces are perfect, others are not. Overall the image is scarred and broken, but each piece in solitude is perfect.

    I see myself as a smart, fun-loving girl I was in my teens most days.  Other days I see that I am getting older and need to lose weight. I try not to see the negative, but at times it is difficult to ignore.

    I see my stubborn beer belly that I've been trying to get rid of far too long. Other than that I see that I'm getting tan in the summer, or dry skin in the winter. I also get self conscious that I may be balding lol.

    There is a reason why I don't have a mirror...it broke the last time I looked in it. Kidding. The cat knocked it over!

    When I look at my reflection I see someone who has a lot of potential in life. Someone who needs to get their butt in gear and actually start living. lol

    Everyday there is a different face; it seems to be a pattern with my moods...
    You can change your self image at anytime but you cannot change things that are concrete; but if you look in the mirror it may help you to change your way of thinking and see the truth of it all...

    This may just be me, but it depends on the mirror:

    My bathroom mirror - I look strong, and thin, and attractive.

    My bedroom mirror - I look untidy.

    Door Mirror in Work - I look immature, and small.
    (I'm the youngest in the office)

    In short, I think how look depends, entirely on how I feel. And how I feel depends on where I am. I must love my bathroom......

    I saw the me that I want to be seen.  I smile to look cute or frown to look angry or nothing to look so prominent. I look side by side to see what is the best angle.  You can't really see yourself just by looking at the mirror. The mirror shows reflection but with different directions:the right becomes the left and the left becomes the right. For me this is what life is: we always act the way we want others to see us but not because we act that way.

    Wow, what a loaded question... Lol

    I don't think anyone truly takes the time to consider and reflect on all that there is hidden in the unknown that lies within the very image that makes up their reflection.

    Reflecting on that image can be enlightening and lead to personal growth with truly knowing and understanding one's self.

    I think if everyone took a long hard look in the mirror before making decisions both about themselves as well as decisions that will effect others, they might be far more inclined to do things that are morally upstanding rather than the latter.

    I personally see someone who is capable of ANYTHING

    I see Scars.
    Skin that is not fully my own
    Bits and pieces
    Shreds of uncolored flesh that i have build up over the years, A mouth that always forms a fake smile,
    And green eyes that recall Memories I no longer wish to see.

    Though i see a strong man,
    Overcoming, welcoming to strangers,
    As many will see the bear-built man covered in tattoes and scars,
    I see him as an experienced individual who has seen pain
    WHo has felt remorse
    who has learned of regret
    and Is at inner peace with his past.

    This is what i see in myself, and my future
