What do you see when you look into a mirror?

Listen to this post ...

For 8000 years humanity has had some version of a mirror to look at their physical reflection.

During that time human beings have been encouraged to use a mirror to spot everything wrong with their appearance that must be corrected or covered up with a product.

A product designed to protect you from someone else discovering your appearance is less than perfect.

It’s a perpetual con game played by those who profit from exploiting your insecurity.

How about instead utilizing a mirror as an opportunity to express gratitude for your imperfections? Assign a meaning to the bumps and creases that give your appearance its character.

It all comes down to the conversation you have about what you see.

You’ve been instructed by others your entire life to cover up in some way to please someone else. Someone else who leverages your feelings of not being good enough to meet their own needs.

You must identify and unlearn the messages you’ve been buying into until all that remains is the realization you don’t need someone else’s approval to feel good about yourself.
