    I thought I was the only one to feel that way. I don't like to see my reflection. Few years back I had this weird phobia with mirrors. I used to freak out looking at myself if I accidentally came across a mirror in restaurants or anywhere out. My friends thought it was funny...

    Don't Like My Reflection

    The only time I look in the mirror is when I shave, and I will check my hair really quick 1st thing in the morning. Other than that I avoid all mirrors in our house, because most of the time I don't like my reflection....I like myself, just not my reflection

    Mirror Glass

    Back then, I did not like looking at the mirror.  Now, I do.  It is me and I try appreciating all that I am or what I look like.  I can't change it anyway!  And you know what?  I ain't that bad!  :P

    "watcher In The Woods" Scarred Me For Life

    When I was a kid, I saw the movie "Watcher in the Woods" and ever since I've been afraid of mirrors. I re-watched the film recently, and by today's standards it's pretty cheesy, but it freaked me out none the less and left a deep impression. If you haven't seen the film, there...

    Hate It..

    I hate the mirror full stop when I am standing in front of it. One look and it can determine whether I am having a good day or a bad day.  Although I admit it has saved me going out in some short-sighted dressing attempts.  My particular demon mirror is the full length...
