Other people’s mirrors

27 Oct

You know how you go along in life, seeing yourself as you see yourself, thinking the world sees you the same way? Then with a random comment, a friend shows you how they see you, and it’s totally different? That happened to me yesterday.

I had dinner with my friend MH yesterday. We were talking about books and movies, and suddenly she says to me, “You’re such a well-rounded person. That’s so cool.”

What?

I’m not sure exactly what she meant, and I wish I had asked her. I don’t considered myself well-rounded, but I guess she does. And it really made me stop and think…maybe I am?

    Fascinating. My husband and I chose each other based on exactly this. I like myself when I look through the mirror of his eyes. And vice versa. Sometimes we show each other less appealing bits, but always with respect and kindness.

      Oh that’s good. Now that you mention it, I think it’s key in a good relationship to have that.
