    Who's That Face In The Mirror?

    I Don't Like to Look in the Mirror.  I rarely comb my hair, a quick ponytail will do no mirror necessary.  I do not wear make up so ... no mirror necessary.  You see, as long as I do not look in a mirror I feel as if I am still 20 years old.

    I Hate My Face.

    For some reason, my face has been breaking out like crazy for the past two weeks.  It usually doesn't.  But now I'm waiting for it to clear, I won't look at myself til it does.  I know most people would say its not that bad, but I still hate it.

    Nope. Not Really For It.

    I can't stand being reminded of my inadequacies for that long and I'm not even a vein or superficial person.  Quite the opposite.  I don't judge other peoples looks or base their worth on it.  I only do this to myself because it's what my worth was based on from...

    Flip Flop

    I'm unsure how to fix my problem. Sometimes I feel completely confident and I'll dress up to impress my husband. And then 80% of the other times I just want to break every mirror in my house so I don't have to look at myself. How do I get myself to have more self esteem? I've...

    A supermodel finds a mirror compact, looks inside, and says, "Hmmm, this person looks familiar." A second supermodel takes a look too, and says, "You dummy, it's me!"
