Is this an issue for anyone else?

For most of my life …
I have never really liked looking at myself in a mirror.
Some of this started when I became 16 years old.
I noticed back then I don’t know whom I am looking at in the mirror. And then I feel as if I am looking at a stranger.
I don’t know anymore why I feel this way, but when I look in the mirror I see my mom, grandpa, little brother, and someone elses face within my reflection from the mirror.
Then I beging to ponder and think is it me I see or a strange old man whom has failed at his life with fleeting memmories of what was.
As I think I realize I dont look like whom I think I am, but all I see is a darkened dismal stranger in my mirror’s reflection.

Does anyone else feel this way , I ask myself.
Is this normal I ask myself.

Then I think about it more, and realise I am still feeling like I am 16 years old, but trapped in a 47 year old mans body. One of which seems to be a stranger in my mirror.


I do this too. I’m like a vampire, I try to avoid all reflective surfaces .


Haha sometimes i look in the mirror and be like who is that :rofl:

It really feels like im looking at a stranger in the mirror sometimes. It actually captivates me and i cant stop staring !



Oh dear @anon39015889 … Don’t stare too long. :smiley:


Haha no man, the problem is when the mirror starts talking back to meeee.

Doesnt it happen to you sometimes when you look at yourself in the mirror and you like " who is that "



In Greek mythology, Narcissus (/nɑːrˈsɪsəs/; Ancient Greek: Νάρκισσος Nárkissos ) was a hunter from Thespiae in Boeotia who was known for his beauty. According to Tzetzes, he rejected all romantic advances, eventually falling in love with his own reflection in a pool of water. He later died, and in his place sprouted a flower bearing his name.

I found this pretty funny though :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


Yea the same thing has happened to me. I have seen other faces in my reflection. I used to stare at it and watch it change and try to analyze it. It’s a visual hallucination. I’ve also been startled by my reflection thinking it was someone else which I think happens to everyone at least once, I could be wrong about that though. :slight_smile:

Sometimes i shave my hair and/or beard off, or let it grow long cause i am bored of my reflection. Sometimes i can’t look too long cause i get frighten of my image. Is there some mirror therapy i can do ? Sometimes i record myself on a camcorder and watch it later.
