Seeing You in My Mirror
The title of this article really caught my eye and intrigued me enough to read it through. Emily Sandoz writes regularly about body image and her article is quite profound.
In the rush of the holidays she was thinking about all her jobs for the day while brushing her teeth and suddenly caught sight of herself in the mirror. She looked herself in the eye. This experience was different from her usual critical analysis of all her self perceived body faults; she met herself in that mirror and accepted what she saw. She writes “Oh yeah… That’s who I am.”
This experience changed how she reacted with others for the rest of the day; take a read and see what happened!
