Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink or use drugs when stressed; I write.

You may find that inside every person you know, there is a separate person that you do not know, the reflection in the mirror. The likeness consists of a feeling like there is a different person that exists inside that you will not be sure, you know or understand.

Sometimes it seems as if this separate person is taking the cause to be in my first actions. When the feeling occurs, I visualize, I still am my same self, but it feels as if the reflection in the mirror is an echo of me.

From the reflection in my mirror, there is only one person who holds the driving force, and that is me. My reflection in the mirror shows what’s outside as no one can see deep within.

Only I know and sees the face in the mirror as I genuinely am. The reflection in my mirror is the effect of all my life’s experiences that only I can present. Given that I have the final say how to represent myself in a world that is repeatedly changing, it is vital how I interact with the reflection in my mirror.

Standing in front of my mirror, I am not sure I recognize the face I see before me. The person who is standing in front of the mirror is trying to take me into a different universe that is stranger and more exciting than ever I imagined.

Therefore, it is vital for me to have the knowledge of who I am, my belief and can handle the challenge within the reflection in my mirror to not lose who I am in the shadow of the unknown darkness of the personalities.

The mirror I am looking through visualize a person being a certain way. The mirror entrusted that I am staying that way. But sometimes there is a higher power that exists; that seeing can be deceiving and when dreaming one might wonder is it believing.

Since I been old enough to look in the mirror at myself, I have developed beliefs, values, and experiences that undoubtedly has helped shape me into this reflection I see today. My life consists of stumbling blocks that blocked my image in the mirror and stood in the way of my happiness.

When we place our face in the mirror, we show separate visages. Moreover, I have come to the reality that this world is one wild and unpredictable place, and from time to time when we are looking into the mirror there are still some parts of us that are a different reflection that we do not know.

Nevertheless, looking at my image makes me realize I have to stop these stumbling blocks now to continue to recognize the face of my reflection.

Although my mirror is here to remind me to do the things that I need to do, my reflection is an image that let me know I need to take control of my life, and today is the beginning.

As I struggle to understand why it is that the reflection in the mirror echoed from the mirrors as it does, I am reminded of all the gained and lost I occurred by living in America.

Nevertheless, looking for my reflection made me realize that it is me, and me alone that is liberty to look in my mirror and not allow it to give me this double- awareness, this sense of always looking at myself through the reflection of my mirror.

This mirror is here as my escort to remind me to do the things that I need to do, but my reflection is an image that let me know I need to take control of my life, and today is the beginning.

As I look at the same face in the mirror, I know I have to take full control of my life, and on that day I wish I could change all the time I took little things for granted.

While my experiences undoubtedly helped shape me, that does not mean I grasp everything in my life as I have not to live life in a prison created by my mind. To not live life in a prison set up by my cognizance, I must not live my life like I am “sleep-walking” through it.

It is vital I search for answers to any problem that makes me miserable at the end of each day. When I look into the mirror, and the reflection is missing, then I am still living my life like I am trying to distinguish how to live life to the fullest, to see the image I have to come into contact with what life has to offer.

That does not mean I can dream myself out of a miserable life in another life, but it does mean that I can exert myself on the road to seeing life crystal clear when I look into the mirror.

I must understand my life for me to take control of my existence and continue to see the reflection in my mirror. I must not allow another person to imagine or replace the face in my mirror. There are various questions I keep asking myself when my face appear in the mirror, “How well do I know myself?”

How do I stop stumbling blocks from removing my reflection of who I am and never allow life to overwhelm me?” How do I continue to allow my thinking to be as if I have no idea what face is before me in the mirror?”

For me to have the answer to these questions, I have to distinguish who I am and understand what I want in life. I need to differentiate who I am because identity has a way of evolving.

Although there comes a time in everyone lives when they just don’t feel comfortable looking in the mirror. For a reason, knowing your identity is an ongoing journey to see the reflection in the mirror, as discovering who you are can be continuous.

“He who knows others is learned; He who knows himself is wise” by Lao-tzu is a famous quote that shares to make the best decision on your own and feel comfortable in your own skin you have to know yourself.

Primarily since life consists of pressure from society and the influence of other people, if a person has not taken the time to understand him or herself, they will have a desire to please others and wonders what it is they want.

One of the most significant handicaps most people have is insecurity. However, if you're going to be able to look at yourself in the mirror, you want to get over insecurity.

To prevent the reflection in the mirror from envisioning, you have to learn that you cannot please everyone, and you should not try. To allow another to be a reflection in your mirror means you must see yourself in that someone.

However, you should never let another to be your reflection in your mirror because what can they tell you about you and what part of your life have they lived? The reflection in the mirror holds your beliefs, values, and experiences as it becomes a looking glass that can help you to continue to learn more about yourself.

When you allow another to be your reflection in your mirror, they are that stumbling block in your life. However, to end those stumbling blocks and fears that will allow another to become the reflection in your mirror, you have to make sure your identity is not attached to other people beliefs and values.

For a reason, becomes a looking-glass for them to see more than they need, and if you see yourself achieving anything from other beliefs, you are fooling yourself.

Looking into the Mirror and Modifying the things, I can Change. When I look into the mirror at me, I see someone who has come across a lot of good and some not so good experience.

However, I know I must be ready to go through a never-felt-before sense of clarity, purpose and try not to allow life to overwhelm me with too much stress that I lose my reflection in the mirror.

One will think it is easy to look into a mirror and see the image to be what you want to be, except it not that simple. Some look into the mirror and hate what they see, I look into the mirror to see my “Authentic” self and strive to live the life I want and deserve.

Sometimes it not easy to change things in your life as we all like. Nonetheless, I can start with something that is in my control, like changing my thoughts and words. Words and ideas can make an unbelievable amount of difference in anyone life.

From life experience, I learn the power of words and ideas hold high authority and is mind-blowing mainly when used in a proper way they can change many situations.

We can speak our future into existent, and when we set goals, it helps us to consider what our life has to offer.

I altered my mind and words and learned my positive words help me look into my mirror with confident, see the reflection, but the impact of my negative words took away my reflection from all my trying times.

Three necessary steps to being Confidence When looking in the Mirror & see the Reflection

Step One – Learn to Love Yourself: If a person is not happy with him or herself, the first steps are to look at the way he or she relates to the world. A person has to be satisfied with him or herself to learn to love themselves.

Many people are unhappy and dislike themselves because they look at the world in a way which doesn’t generate or merit happiness.

Step Two – Maintaining your love: To take back that joy, we need to understand how to keep up the love found when you learn to love yourself. While happiness should not be determined by whether you have a special love in your life, it certainly helps.

Being in synch with knowing how to love yourself also helps. If you have not yet met that soul-mate, and this is something you seek, this step will help you to find him/her. When you can keep up your love, you can accept your flaws and look into the mirror with confidence.

Step Three – Practice being happy: When a person can prove how to put something into practice, it can come naturally. Training shows you how to become more comfortable and become secure and content

The reflection in the mirror holds a powerful image and effort as everyone has variations of themselves. We represent ourselves in many ways in various situations.

A mirror contains the face of a person learning more about him or herself. It helps the person articulate a vision of a healthy life or not so virtuous life we get to choose. When we continue to look at the man or woman in the mirror, it shows what or where our actions lead.

The most prominent rewards can be hidden behind the mirror’s reflection. The mirror’s reflection is the likeness you did not know were there all the time stemming from one place: the face in the mirror or not seeing what’s right in front of you.

The most significant reflection in my mirror

  • My self-belief and tendency to annoy thing not worth taking up my time
  • My capacity to forgive others
  • My closeness to God when I need someone to lean on and take away the hurts and help me admit too…being honest again
  • My overindulgence of knowledge…and the reflection…of whom God is giving me the ability to learn more. The more I know him and lean on him, the more I carry out.

Below is a list of personal obstacles that prevent me from seeing my reflection in the mirror

  • In need of happiness
  • In need of self-control
  • Lack of information
  • Lack of purpose and inspiration
  • Lack of ambition and want
  • Lack of ability to love myself
  • Too much Procrastination
  • Lack of attention to detail
  • Negative thoughts
  • Pessimistic words
  • Excessively blaming of self or others
  • Various excuses
  • Too much complaining
  • Assess Mirror’s Reflections

How can one check something unless they can figure out how it originated? They must first know where it stems from or what originates from. To make sure you know where it stems from you must, therefore, ask yourself:

  • Where did it all begin?
  • What can I do to make sure I understand how and where things start?
  • What must I do to calculate it all?

The mirror’s reflections are “things” that are a part of your life’s experience or here to edify, educate in mistakes, and make you stronger for the journey that yet to come.

To assess the mirror reflections, we must not view challenges as insurmountable difficulties that will prevent us from evaluating the mirror reflections, but rather as small — and at times significantly — stepping stones that are required “building block.”

To successfully evaluate a mirror’s reflection, one must take the time to learn the lessons that life throws their way. For a reason, these lessons will be critical to your success as you move forward into the future.

Tips for maintaining the mirror reflections

When we awake each day, we are confronted with the face in the mirror, problems, and challenges until it is easy to become a little overwhelmed. Especially when the situations are unfamiliar, and it is easy to react emotionally to the circumstances which can become a peril and critical condition.

However, no matter what each day throws your way, we are left with the face in the mirror. Nonetheless, we must keep in mind that we are always responsible for coming up with options.

Whether you have the answer or searching, there are always things you can do, arrangements you can make and choices you can make that will keep the reflection in the mirror.

First, you want a solution that will keep you moving forward in the right direction. When unexpected obstacles suddenly display itself, step back and take a good look at the face in the mirror.

Then go ahead by remaining focus and grasp the situation from a logical perspective.

Lastly, you should identify the exact relevance and importance of the incident that has taken place.

However, emotional responses are often not very productive, and they will prevent you from gaining the necessary resources and provision. Moreover, if we stop, think, and take a deep breath, it will ease the situation.

Most important, we must learn to step back from our emotional state and see the situation as it is — through reason and intelligence.

Furthermore, everyone wants to find that utopia when he or she looks into the mirror where the reflection contributes to happiness. We live in a world full of pressures, so much to handle until sometimes it hard to look into the mirror, know who we are or find the reflection, and it is not always easy to balance or see the reflection in the mirror.
