inspiration the model before the mirror

There comes a moment in your life, that you have to look into yourself , reflecting yourself in your own personal mirror.
Looking back at all your experiances, and see if have learned from them, how they felt, and appreciated. When you stand or sit before the mirror of your past, you try to place memories, and experiances in your life, and if they meaningfull in your present life.

On the other side
looking into the mirror of your past can reveal things you rather not want to remember, things that no matter what you try, can't be forgiven, things that have had such big impact on your being that they made you who you are. Things that you know that kinde ' ruined' you, and then hide themselves deep in the mirrorworld..

looking into the mirror of your own past requires the guts to see your own faillure, you have to learn to laugh with yourself and the silly, stupid en embarrasing things you have done in your life, you have to face your own stupidity, your own overestimation. You have to learn to look throught the fantasy we build around our memories, which means that we first encounter desillusion, to get to see the truth behind the 'lies'.. The mirror shows us our own 'ego'

When we look in the mirror of our past, we search for a wall that separates what we want to see, and what we really are. We have to have the guts to drop the mask we are wearing, we need to learn to let go and accept who we are..

When we decide to step into the mirror of our past we will enter a world , we enter in a way a world of somebody else. because the mirror shows colored memories.Behind the mirror we see a world and another vieuw of ourselves outside ourselves, we see it in a different reality because of the things we have add or forgot . Because we do wear glasses when we experiance things. we color our experiances through how we felt, saw and remember it..

The mirror to our past, is our way to seek the truth about ourselves and our own world. To reveal the illusion that we create about ourselves.

You see to much lol, the girl in the mirror was another manip that i started a long time ago but lost the inspiration for that one , it was missin somthing .So when i started on this one, i suddenly 'saw' those two combined, and i had a new purpose for an 'lost' manip :D

Nicely done! It flows together nicely. I like the comments as well...sometimes the hardest part of maturing is forgiving yourself.

Thank you:)
Thats true :) forgiven yourself is often a stand in the way because sometimes you don't realise you have to do that, because you have no blame at all
