If only my reflection in the mirror could see how much I care about myself.

I’m always amazed by how many people struggle to see themselves as they really are. It’s not that they are delusional. They are just too focused on the external. They refuse to acknowledge the internal.

A mirror is a powerful tool for revealing the inner. It’s that simple. And yet, most of us are so busy trying to keep up appearances that we don’t see the person in the mirror. This can cause us to miss out on an essential dimension of ourselves.

We all know that we have an inner world that influences our outer world. But many of us don’t know that the inner world is also affecting us. The mirror can help you to see things you might never have noticed. It’s like having a mirror-image friend that can help you see something you might otherwise miss.

But there’s nothing quite like the feeling of being in love with someone who doesn’t love you back. It can be agonizingly painful to look at the person you love and see that they are not looking back at you. It can feel like your heart is breaking into pieces every time you think about them.

If only my reflection in the mirror could see how much I care about myself.

I know it’s hard to believe, but the person in the mirror is deserving of unrequited love. You may not believe me now, but I can assure you that this is true.

I’ve spent most of my life thinking about this person, and I’m ready to share with you what I’ve learned. First, the person in the mirror has a heart that is as big as the universe. Second, this person has an insatiable appetite for affection and validation. Third, this person will never stop trying to prove herself worthy of love. And finally, this person will always be there for you even when you are not there for yourself.

I can see that my reflection is perfect in every way. It is deserving of unrequited love. But the sad thing is that it will never know how I feel about it because it can’t return my feelings. It has no feelings of its own. I wish that weren’t the…
