Reflections on My Mirror


"What do people see when they look at me?" that is the question that worked its way into my mind this morning while I was standing in front of the bathroom mirror (NO, I was NOT naked!). I really do wonder what people see. Do they see the same face I see everyday. The hair which sometimes looks black and sometimes brown... the eye which turn hazel in the sun and ebony indoors... and skin which is highly problematic most of the time. Seriously, I sometimes wonder if my eyes lie to me (silly and downright outrageous, I know). But, it does not hurt to wonder... does it? If it is true, it's not like you're ever going to find out.

i know no one ever sees what i see when i look in the mirror. i just look deep inside my eyes and think about all the things i've seen and gone through, i guess other people just see my face and that's it lol

hi there,
guess everyone sees the pretty face, pretty much the same way! the difference is in how one interprets wat is seen. so probably everyone creates a unique picture out of wat is seen.
but then who can mistake the most adorable girl...!!!
