    Stupid Flaws

    i can't help but wish that what i see is not what other people see and i am constantly looking in car window relections and going into different bathrooms trying to see if by some miracle some kind of lighting can make me look pretty. But instead it's always too bright and i look...

    I feel pretty, oh so pretty,

    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...

    I always look at my reflection

    when I walk by a mirror or window and literally scoff and call myself a worthless piece of sh** haha but I wouldn't say it if it were true. I mean I look like a freaking bloated whale, who'll ever want me? My answer to that is Ana and Mia in case you're unaware, it is anorexia...

    WHAT DO I SEE? When I get up in the morning

    the first thing I do is look in the mirror… I never like what I see… Sometimes I just sit there looking at myself in the mirror wondering what other people can see and what they think of me! I actually don't know why I look in the mirror… I'm not good looking at all so...

    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 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...

    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.

    Judging

    To begin, I do not judge anyone. Except for myself. I look at my flaws. I look for fixable imerfections. I donèt want other people to see anything I missed that is in any way ugly or unnattractive. I want to be perceived as bautiful, so I keep analyzing, and deciding what needs...

    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...

    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...

    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. ^~^

    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.

    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 :)

    Just standing there, full length mirror in front of me, my own image looking back at me, contemplating, indecision in her eyes. Her lips are pursed, thinking, contemplating. "Do I like her?" the eyes seem to ask, as they travel up and down, each pass noticing more and more...
