Sometimes what we think we see and what we think others see may not be the same thing. Sometimes that's good; sometimes it sucks. Here's what one reader sent us:
"I have this… thing where, in my mind's eye, I'm thinner than I actually am. Catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror can be devastating. It's not that I don't know I'm overweight: I just don't *see* myself that way, so when it's shoved in my face, it's startling to say the least." [end of story.]
Does anyone else have this mind's-eye glitch? What's the difference – if any – between what you see in the mirror and what's in your mind's eye?
