Hate the Reflection by XxListen2theRainxX Hate the Reflection by XxListen2theRainxX
.~`*♥*`~.

I get compliments once in a while, but never believe they're true. Never admit it to anyone though. What I really believe lays marked and marred behind the mirror glass. If I dare to look long enough all the thoughts come swarming back in a large flood. Passing through the thoughts and into the eyes. Warping the vision and making me see what nobody else does. That monster that is me...

The photo is myself. It was done pretty much myself, except for the person that had to press the button for me. The only thing edited was to make the picture black and white and add the few faded words viewed in the mirror...

I think you're a very pretty young woman. I really like this photo. It's a different spin on the self-portrait-in-the-mirror shot. You have wonderful, long legs and beautiful hair.

So, when you get the compliments, believe them, trust them. I suspect most, if not all of, the time they're sincere.

Self image is such a conundrum. For me looking in the mirror is the visual equivalent of listening to a recording of your voice.. that "EWWWWWWWW that is NOT me!" feeling. Reading your lit and seeing your photography, you are truly a gifted soul. Thanks for your contribution to "our world" (aka the dAmn world).

You're absolutely dead on with the feeling. It really IS like listening to a recording and thinking that it couldn't possibley be you. I never would have thought of putting it that way.

Thank you so very much for the sweet words. It means a lot to me.

Tabby, none of those things on the mirror are true, and believe me, Im nothing if not honest. Im sorry you feel that way and I believe you deserve every compliment you get and more! you are gorgeous. not ugly. Your not a slut. your not strange. you couldn't be a liar. Your not stupid. and your defiantly not a fake. your Tabitha and people love you for that believe it or not. anyone who says otherwise can go fuck themselves. I love you tabby :(
and you dont have to admit it but don't deny it. I mean, i can relate.
yea.. and awesome pic. your an amazing photographer.

*favs*

HUUGS. <33

I'm glad you liked picture hon.

I'm sorry the little theme upset you though. Just trying to get a point across I suppose. A lot of people feel this way sometimes I am sure... It's always a pleasure to hear the sweet things that come out of your mouth though. :) I appreciate it darlin', don't you forget that!

Thanks for faving and commenting!
