When I looked at the Mirror, it said to me:
“You have been through a lot. In this treacherous journey of life you stand alone with your dreams and aspirations. Some people mocked at you and you proved them wrong. The day is not far when I see you rise and even if I am broken into pieces you should see the positive side of things. I reveal what you are rather what you want to be."
"Never give up on yourself no matter how tough things or situations might become. You can fake to anyone but not to me. You can ignore me for some days, but not for long because every single day you have to look at me. In the end I am just a reflection and it all depends on you as to how you want me to perceive you. Your future will be much more treacherous than what you have experienced yet you should never give up because you are a Hopeless Optimist."
"As you stand in front of me every single day, I only hope you get stronger each day. I know my life is limited when compared to you. Someone will replace me with whom you may not share the same affection as you share with me, yet the YOU in yourself should never change for the worst."
As my conversation with the Mirror came to an end, it said to me finally,
“If you fake to me, you only have to bear the guilt later on, because I am just a reflection of who you portray yourself to be.”
PS: This blog would not have taken shape if not for the concept of my dear friend Aditi (www.islejazz.blogspot.in) who asked people as to what would they see when they see the mirror, what they felt, how did they feel and all.
