    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...

    Backwards...

    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.

    What I see in the mirror,is supposively completely different than what everyone else sees. I believe that I could be told by every perosn in the universe how beautiful I am,and I would still hate the way I look. I really think our own opinion on ourselves adds 10 extra pounds. I...

    Yup, All The Time.

    Whenever i go to the bathroom, i usually spend a while looking at myself. Kinda like staring at myself in the mirror. I also look at my nose, or my eyebrows or mess around with my hair. Sometimes i'm like "What the hell is that thing in the mirror" and other times i think "Not...

    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...

    I Shouldn't

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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. ^~^

    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 :)

    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.
