Sometimes when I look in the mirror I just can't associate myself with the person on the other side. But I'm an odd one. Just wondering if any one has ever had this problem.

When I look in the mirror I see a person that others do not. I hear all the compliments from others and say, that can't be this person, can it? Why do they see this in me and I do not. I'm staring that the same person!
It's usually a comment that I think is just "nice", because I used to, and I still might a little, have self esteem issues. But I have come to accept that people do not give comments out like candy on Halloween. Why would a person take their time to compliment a random stranger? In this world of fast paced economics and money making, people do not have such time for things that do not deserve the time.
And I have also begun to see what others say. Like a cloud dissipating, one image faded into another. The one that others have said. I was very negative of myself, very self critical. But I now see what others see in me. I am a nice person, I do care, and I'm not that bad looking.
Now on another note, self identity, on a deeper level. Your morals, values, beliefs, "wrong doings", "right doings", what makes you care, are you attractive, what do you want in life, what do you have, what is life to you, who do you care for, what do you admire in others.
You know? Look at yourself in the mirror, and for a minute or two, do not think of all the things people say you are. People do not define you. Without all the labels, positive compliments, negative compliments, who are you? What are your talents? Your beliefs, values, morals, if you were another person and saw this person, would you want to talk to them?
Now, since you have that image of yourself, keep it. Commit it to memory, this is you. This can change, you will change throughout life. But, when someone says you are something, look back to this image of yourself, look within and you will know what you are, who are you. Not what others tell you you are.
