It’s never an easy thing facing yourself in the mirror. Most people use it as a time to try and make their outer appearance look good, doing their make-up, fixing their hair, and whatnot. It’s a funny thing, using a mirror to focus on what others can see.
But what about using a mirror to reflect the deepest parts of your mind that you wish to ignore? Using a mirror to have a true one-on-one with yourself in order to get past those negative thoughts? It may sound chaotic and psychotic, but trust and believe.
It’s quite normal, no matter who the person is, and regardless of what they do for a living.
I flipped the small switch on the wall and walked into the bathroom, a bright, white light shining in my eyes. I quickly adjusted and stood in the middle of the bathroom, staring straight at the medicine cabinet ahead. My tired reflection stared back at me in the mirror before I opened the cabinet, taking out my medication bottle.
“One a day will keep the deadly allergies away.”
I took off the cap to the bottle and took a pill, swallowing it without issue. I put the bottle back and closed the cabinet.
My reflection was now smiling at me.
