We peep at mirrors to make sure we are ... what? Okay? Neat looking? To ascertain if there's anything weirdo, odd ball, wrong with our face, hair, neck, or what we are wearing?
Mirrors tell me every day what I look like now. Now gets me comparing myself with yesterday, and emphasizes what I don't want to see -- lines, crinkles, wrinkles, messy strands of hair, or hair that isn't there, where it used to be. Also posture, that suggests I'm tired, and that says I am not young.
So many things -- too many things you see, read, hear get you checking and studying yourself, evaluating your assets and prowess. Checking on oneself is an obsession, not just in females, males have this obsession too.
Count -- note -- how many times a day you look in mirrors? Try cutting it down, doing it less. If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again. If it's life and death important and you fear that you might have spinach on a tooth, smudged lipstick, you need a shave -- hey -- pop into any sandwich shop. Check yourself in a paper napkin dispenser, or in a knife, teaspoon, or tablespoon mirror.
Mirror mirror on the wall.
I need not see of myself at all.
Throughout my day you put a pall.
That makes me into a vain and small,
Guys, try a day without a mirror. Go cold turkey.
