I Analyze Myself In The Mirror

    When you look in the mirror,

    what do you see? Do you notice Your face, shaped like a heart, can be nothing short of pale, Or Your eyes that suck the life out of color look like a muddy pool of hazel? Do you notice Your lips, plump and naturally pink, curve like a stretching bow aiming an arrow that, once...

    Perfect Girl

    I am so tired of the images of women in film, Televison and commercial. And how it influences me even though I don´t want it too. Therefore I have made a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38h6St_z-oo It´s something I am sure a lot (most?) of the women all over this world...

    Mirrors Are Evil

    All I see is a body I never wanted and "EATING DISORDER" on my forhead. I have confidence, and don't want to be a twig, but the more I see my body get ruined by my actions I feel disgusting. Mirrors suck.

    45 Minutes

    I at least spend about 45 minutes in front of the mirror every day  and it's not because I like to check out how "hott" I think I look, it's for the complete opposite reason actually. It's torture..so I've been TRYING to avoid mirrors all together. Only problem I'm having...

    That's Me

    I Look At Myself And Wonder Who I Really Am....

    As I just don't know anymore. Children adore me in my daycare and adults instantly *take* to me but I feel that as they get to know me, they find it easy to cast me aside or use me. Then I wonder if it's just me because I have a fear that I am mentally deranged and that my...

    I Cannot Take It Anymore

    With every look, I feel disappointed. I am never good enough. I wish I could be hot for once, or feel sexy. But no. I feel like the cute little girl next door, and I am sick of it. I will never meet my standards, or anyone's, in the mirror. I look at my older sister, and even my...

    I Can't Find Anything Positive

    All I see is the white dry patches of psoriasis, the red spots of dermatitis, constantly growing body hair, stretch marks, pimples covering my face, the dark wrinkly underlays of my eyes, huge male body. And I have to comb my hair every fifteen minutes or my hair'll look like...

    A Lot Of People Do It...

    Ever since I was little, I've found the teeny tiny imperfections that everyone finds, that no one else sees. I suck in my stomach, and hope to get thinner, even though I never make an effort to work out. I push up the arch of my eyebrows, just to see what it would look like if it...

    The Mirror Is My Enemy

    I can't use mirrors, because once I get in front of one, I will stay there for awhile. I end up having someone pull me out of the bathroom to get out of the mirror. I always find something wrong or have to fix my hair or something.

    Analyzing Ourselves

    I had never begun to understand things and put them under perspective until I started to analyze my own self and my own feelings.Why do I get sad? Or why do I get happy? Or angry? Why do I stay away from some, and go towards others? Why do I do what I do?  Why do insults come...

    Jan. 25, 2011  My problem with mirrors is rather unconventional.There's two mirrors I usually look in: as far as examining my body, it's the full-length mirror leaning against the wall of my bedroom; and for studying my face, it's the medicine cabinet mirror in the bathroom...

    Reflection. Because I'm An Angsty Little Thing.

    You've got a fairly athletic figure. It's just bull. Because you shut yourself up indoors and eat when you're not at school. Appearances vs reality much? Thank god for your genes. Or else you'd be a fat ****. You already are. Compared to all the skinny girls. Why can't you be...

    Idk What To Put As A Title....

    I guess I obsess about the tiniest things like pimples and boys and hair and clothes. I'm just a normal teenager so I'm not obsessed with my weight or anything... I eat plenty because I'm a soccer player and have a high metabolism. So theres my story :)

    This Needs To Stop

    Religiously, every day I will do this. Excruciatingly, painfully slowly, I'll scan over myself looking for flaws. It's not hard to find them, as I wasn't blessed with great skin or well behaved hair.Pores are huge....Hair's gone curly there....Eyebrows need plucking....Ears stick...

    Is This For Girls Only!? O.o"

    I don't think I saw many guys joining this group, but oh well. Sure I analyze myself in the mirror from time to time. I just check out my workout progress, and take picture every two or so weeks. :D I'd give a list, buuuuuuuut, nope. ^~^
