Never trust a mirror.
It’s perhaps one’s natural inclination to believe that others see us the way we see ourselves in a mirror, both literally and figuratively, but both are far from the truth.
Mirror me is always making eye contact. Mirror me is quite familiar with me, is in a safe place, and is not afraid of me.
Mirror me knows my strengths and weaknesses, my virtues, and my evil.
I trust mirror me, and mirror me trusts me.
What we know about a person shapes our perception of their outward appearance.
The mirror is a case-study in self-deception, on many levels.
