MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL, AM I
OK AFTER ALL?
When I was a child, a traveling circus came to town, and my
parents took me to see the show. My favorite part of the
side show was the house of mirrors. It was fun to see the
distorted reflections of my body. A completely flat mirror gives
a true reflection, but a curved mirror reflects a false image.
The type of distortion in the mirror determines the type of
distortion in the reflected image.
Each mirror produced a different type of distortion. Some
mirrors made my chest look big and strong, and I immediately
felt powerful. Some made me look as tall as Goliath, and
others transformed me into a midget. Some made my head as
big as a basketball, and others shrunk it down to the size of a
golf ball. Some made me look fat, and others made me look
I enjoyed the house of mirrors because I
knew that what I was seeing wasn't the real me. The
reflection was a distortion of who I was, and I had no problem
distinguishing between the real me and the one I saw in the
Later on, I discovered I spent my entire
life living in a house of mirrors. I found out that
emotions are a reflection of the thoughts that cascade through
my mind. Each thought that I think takes me on a trip to
my personal house of mirrors.
My mind isn't a quiet place.
Thoughts shout and screech and echo as they go round and round
my mind. Eventually the swirling dervish of thought stands
in front of the mirror of my mind. Suddenly, magic
happens, and I feel emotion. When I look in the
mirror, I don't see myself, I feel myself. If I like the
reflection, I feel good. If I don't like it, I feel bad.
