Beyond the Mirror

An individual, personal summary of the dynamics between reality/ perceived reality & impact on wellbeing.

  • Distorted views, distorted feelings
  • Engulfing thoughts, feelings & choices
  • Positivity drained by an image visualized but hidden to all
  • Sense of worth determined by emotionally led reasoning not understood by outsiders
  • Protective fog of contrasting opinions surrounding a fragile physical form
  • One view to the outside world, many others kept within
  • Endless invites, occasions cancelled- expert at plausible reasoning to mask panic inside
  • Day to day inner strength required to present an image of confidence, knowledge & togetherness whilst battling personalised, loud & constant voices
  • Tug of war with yourself- push away, pull back, push away, pull back
  • Self worth determined by mirror dictating choices for the minute, hour, day
  • Perpetual cycle- mirror, feelings, activity, mirror, feelings, activity……
  • Control, power, self efficacy, balance
  • Lonely, loner, secretive, wary
