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.
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.
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.
