Despite the amount of time some of us spend in front of the mirrors scrutinizing each inch of the mirror reflection of ourselves, when this question pops out, we would always do a double take, ponder and then try to answer this question seriously but we could never truly accurate describe ourself. Its like forever trying to grasp which shade of colour we are but we always miss the mark: we either describe ourself as too pale a shade or too bright a shade.
Lets not go all deep and describe or measure our intelligence by the score of our IQ or type of Myers Bridge test. I shall take the challenge and try do describe myself (face wise) for once.
I have quite a broad face, sharper chin, medium size dark brown eyes (don't you scream FALSE at this point!) that forms into a one liner when I smile or laugh (see I am admitting this fact but I DO have eyes pft!), average nose with a 'button' tip, normal size lips, not too big not too small not too thin nor too full, layered hair from neck length (shortest point) to nearing waist length (longest point) and with pores on my face, yellow skin shade.
And that's how I see myself in the mirror. Perhaps others see the same, perhaps others sees differently, I don't know, I cannot be my own judge.
I came across this video by chance and I thought it was a wonderfully made video and if I could, I would make you watch it but I can't so I would simply, politely ask you to watch it and hope it reaches out to you like it did to me.
It is a 3 minute video and it currently has 61 million views so it has to mean something, so please, do watch it.
Most of the people around me sees things beautifully and the best side of another person but when it comes to themselves, they are unnecessarily harsh on judging themselves and I think it is high time to change that. We are mere mortal and we are on a very different league than Angelina Jolie or Chris Hemsworth but that does not make us any less disabled than them and it is something that we should realize. Some of us may never look like cover girls but hey, we have heaps and abundance of happiness in our life and for that alone, it is simply enough.
We are growing each day and in a blink of an eye, we will start to sprout grey hairs, wrinkles and then we simply pass on and turn to dust so don't be so hard on yourself. Love thyself, for there's only one of you and you, my dear friend, is special.
Lots of love,
P/s: Thank you Po, for sparking this thought in me.
