Today’s Prompt – Look in the mirror. Does the person you see match the person you feel like on the inside? How much stock do you put in appearances?

I usually don’t write from prompts, but today this prompt is quite awesome and fitting thanks to my post yesterday.

Body image.

Looking in the mirror can cause happiness, depression, anxiety, and goals. 

Body image is a HUGE factor in a lot of people’s lives. Looking in the mirror can cause happiness, depression, anxiety, and goals. That is just the tip of what looking in the mirror can cause.

all my flaws

Looking in the mirror is hard for me some days, and still is. I see all my flaws in the mirror- loose skin, stretch marks, my big stomach/butt/thighs, and acne.

Then I remember these things were caused by my abuse on my body. I let myself get up to 250lbs, and I am not proud of that. Loosing weight has given me loose skin and has pronounced my stretch marks.

While it makes me sad looking in the mirror, I need to take a step back and remember the journey to where I am now.

Then I smile.

This is a neverending journey, that started with me looking in the mirror and making myself accountable for where I was and where I am now.

Looking in the mirror shows me I am strong and I CAN do anything.
