Distorted View

As I walk through the hallway something catches my eye. I step back to see what it is. The reflection in the mirror is one that I find some familiarity in but do not recognize as my own. The image looking back at me brings tears to my eyes. Who is this? When did I become this? 


What Others See
What I see

I know that I am overweight, but why is my view so distorted? Why is what I see not what is actually there? I feel like I am in a funhouse. When speaking to a friend, I realized how common this is. 


Do you have a distorted view of yourself?

I feel the same way about myself. I feel like people see and old washed up fat woman.

When I am not thinking about it or focused on it, I think I am the sh**... but once someone goes to take a picture, or I see myself in a reflection or video, I become a wreck. I throw away pictures of the family if it has me in it.

I think my view is distorted in the opposite direction. Sometimes I think I see myself as a lot prettier than other people see me. Hmm, Idk.
