Mirror Mirror, I Don’t Like What I See

Ok, so this isn’t me in the mirror but this is my shadow/profile 😁. As warped as it looks, it isn’t far from how I see myself. You see, I have a pretty distorted view of myself. The image I see in the physical mirror and the mirror in my mind is often not what…
