Tell Me What You See............when You Look At Me

I don't really know what I see when I look in the mirror. I wish I could put myself in other people's shoes and look at myself from their perspective. What do they see???? Do they think I'm High maintenance??? Do they think I'm ugly?? Can they tell I'm happy, can they tell I'm sad??? Or am I invisible??? What is my first obtic impression???

I think you're a very shiny unicorn. That's what I think.

put up a pic and find out.

there was a young lady called christine agulara who sang a song not so long ago called we are beautiful,or something but the point in me bringing this up is to say dose it realy matter what other people think of us we are all individuals no matter what and this can't change even when we are with someone we are still the same person,someone may look at us and say wow yet at the same time some other person could look and not even see us.<br />
so i reitarate dose it realy matter,if you are frinds with someone you tend to know them better than someone you have never met so they are looked at in a diferent light and someone who passes you in the street probebly has no thoughts about you,infact most people are to preocupied with there own lives they are bl<x>inkered.<br />
so be you and ( parden my french ) bugger evryone else unless they take the time to get to know you.

Its an interesting question, as no one will see the same thing as another. Someone said that what is seen is what is projected, which is true to an extent. I've found that people tend to see what they want to see. Very few see what we want them to see. <br />
<br />
But if only we could see ourselves as others see us, we'd find out how beautiful and wonderful we are and stop with the all the self doubts.

At an earlier time in my life, I, too, used to wonder what people thought about me. Then, after living with an active alcholic and after I went through tons of counseling, I realized that I truly don't give a damn what others think of me. The only person I need to take care of is me (without going into that: Yes, I'm a mother and I take good care of my family....) The bottom line is, we come into this life alone and we will leave it by ourselves, too. What could I possibly do to impress others anyway? <br />
The way I look at it, I'm impressive just by being myself; what you see IS what you get. What else could I do? I'm incapable of being all things to all people. 'Sides, it would wear me out!!

i agree..i mean i always see everything i admire in others but i realise that people i don't even know admire me..when they randomly say something to me about something they like about me...even when i don't know them and see them everyday[[in the hallway at school]] they notice things that i change or do differently then i did before or just differently from anyone else...people i know say that i'm pretty or have a great smile or straight teeth[[and ask if i've had braces wich i haven't]] and i'd like to see what everyone see's outside me and inside me...i can't i think the problem is that i am too buisy noticing things about others to notice myself or maybe i look too deep into others to know how to look inside myself..i don't know...but since i was little i always looked in the mirror wondering what others would see and i'd always look to see if i could see it but i never saw anything but my reflection..and now when i look in the mirror i still don't see anything but i think of all the things people seem to admire...i can think of it but never see any of it but i try to since there's that thing about how people only see you as you see yourself...i guess they do see me as i see myself but i prolly never pay much attention to how i see myself becuase i am too buisy thinking of other things like how something about someone else is really interesting or whatever i don't know<br />

wow i hope i didn't confuse you :[<br />
man i didn't expect this too be a such a long comment...<br />
lol anyways long story short i should have just said i understand what you mean..

People tend to see whatever you project. For example, if you project confidence, people will see you as being attractive, happy, fun, etc. They will then be more likely to see in you what they *want* to see. People are not very ob<x>jective.
