when we look into a mirror,
for some of us,
we look good.
i know i do.
well the thing is,
when someone takes a picture of us sometimes its…
who is that person?
it seems like in a picture,
all your flaws are enhanced xs 10.
that forehead you thought was decent was actually pushed back.
those dark spots on your cheek can play a good game of tic tac toe.
that double chin…
all shit to make you more self conscious than you already may be.
yet you look on instagram,
everyone has the perfect angle.
don’t it seem all the attentionistos take the BEST pictures?
i often wondered about the reflection we see staring back as us.
is the true image the one from the mirror or the camera?
and even tho both reflections look different,
is it the opinion of others that really matters?
our friends can be biased.
our true friends rather.
they may hold the truth to spare our feelings.
so i had to ask…
Mirror, Camera, or Person:
Which opinion of your image do you trust?
