People who go into hiding by mehrmeer People who go into hiding by mehrmeer
You don't need me. What you really need is a mirror. Because any stranger is for you simply a mirror in which to reflect yourself. I don't ever again want to return to such a desert of mirrors.

hiding from mirrors or reflecting in others. don't we have other choices?

Hm, as for other choices, I'd agree with what *bymano said above - keep looking for the 'right' mirror(s) [I think "right" is where one is not afraid of being oneself in], if there is any out there at all. At the moment, that sounds like the most acceptable choice to me. What would you say, Hanan?

i say it would be soothing, but the image would change with time, from what you think they see, progressively to what they think they see. that are both an illusion.
but necessary for life. not all illusions are bad, to the contrary.

You like seeing yourself in the other one (believe me) - you know why - because it's sooo rare such a mirror that became quite precious if you find it ;).
From this point of view I adore such mirrors - never see it in reality grrr

but I'm not happy to be lost in a room with many mirrors - oh the sensation it's such strange that you lose your mind trying to find the real door from outside [link]

Hi Manon, first of all, great to see you around :)

Thank you for this meaningful comment, I actually see what you mean. No doubt it's hard to find the 'right' mirror(s), indeed. Less is more regarding this case as well, I'd say. You think it's possible at all to find at least one mirror of that kind? The one that would, in fact, "suit your reflection". (maybe, maybe?)

But on that note, I always look for those very rare (and perhaps even small) things to find or to just notice, after all. Although I already realized that it's always better just going ahead and you will simply know when something good appears, anyway.

I don't know many things around mirrors are, only few ideas that cross my mind in time. It was a time when I wrote about them... just for fun

For instance a mother or a father is looking at his child (many time) like is looking in mirror, reliving their own child(hood)). But in this case we talk about the same blood.
In rest, I named mirror the common points (ideas, feelings, behavior) between 2 (or more) persons. A person with whom you have nothing in common or too less things we name it stranger, no? So I think this "mirror" effect it's important in any relationship we build. It's pretty simple to me.
Also personal opinion, a person almost identical, in all with you is something unbearable, quite boring - difference is necessary like salt and pepper :).
