    Doesn't really mean I feel not confident with

    myself, but it's just...mirroring makes you judging yourself. You can stand in front of it all day, saying like "Oh yes i'm pretty", "Gosh...I'm so curvy", "Damn,, need to lose weight", "I know I'm attractive" or "OMG I'm so skinny", and so on and so far. That way, then you...

    Not Hate

    I just avoid doing it. Sometimes it's because I think I'm ugly, other times it's because I'm just bored of looking at myself. It works out fine because I don't really give a sh*t about how I look on a day to day basis. If it wasn't for shaving and looking up while I wash my...

    I Cover My Mirror Up

    I hate the way I look, I cant seem to stop myself from insulting every little thing about me. I keep my mirror covered up, but at least twice a day I uncover it just to see how I look today, any better than yesterday? 'no, worse. ugly as ever. look at that...

    It's Actually Funny

    When I look in the mirror I stare at myself and say, god I'm ugly. How can people look me straight in the face? Sometimes I try 2 avoid mirrors at all times but when I encounter them I quickly look away. Its hilarious. I laugh at my reaction 2 seeing my own face!

    I wish I could be like J. who has no shame. He does what he wants, doesn’t seem to care what anyone thinks. He manipulates situations, talks softly, pushes back his thick black hair—he’s part Comanche he reminds me. I don’t think he acts this way...

    Wish Mirrors Didn't Exist

    Everyday I try my hardest to not to look in the mirror, I do it only when I have to. Even when I'm sitting on my bed I have to open my closet door because it's a mirror. Sometimes I just want to break them because i don't want to see my reflection.

    For me it's not just the mirror.

    I hate to look at myself even if it's just a reflection on a glass door. I even remember crumpling a newspaper article with a picture of me without so much as a thought right in front of my mother. And the thing is, I don't know why.

    I Avoid My Mirror

    I can go days without looking at myself. Just because there is a mirror over my bathroom sink, does not mean I look up while brushing my teeth, or washing my hands. I have no full-length mirror in my room to check how I look in whatever I grabbed from the closet. And since I...

    I'm a fusty man. My fashion is 80 years out of

    date. I do not dress in the theme of swag that I hate. I suppose it is me to blame. Am I insane, lost in my own self destructive game? Or perhaps it is I who is sane and everyone else who is insane.

    It's not that I'm ugly.

    People tell me I'm pretty all the time, I just don't see it. I'm my own worst critic. To me I look so plain. Too boring. My blonde hair too dark, my eyes too small, and my lips too wide. I look at myself and think, I will never stand out. No one would pick me out of a crowd. I...
