Random thought #459: Do we really look like what we see in the mirror.

Now seriously, think about this. Who decided that a mirror is the proper way to view oneself? It’s just always made me wonder. Some days I wake up and look so… empty, so sad. I don’t know what the cause of it is, but I can see it in my eyes when I look in the mirror. Does anyone else notice it? Is my smile really crooked when it’s insincere? Why has no one ever called me out on that? Then there are other days where it’s like the sun itself would be jealous of my glow. Is it the mirror who decides how I will appear to the rest of the world? Because merely getting out of bed doesn’t seem like it should effect my whole face, my body, my eyes..
