I just watched a BBC documentary about self image. A famous fashion photographer took 4 people who really don’t like how they look, and took gorgeous photos to show them the reality of their own individual beauty.
One young woman had what is called body dysmorphic disorder. She looks in the mirror and sees something different from reality. She was pretty. The photos they took of her were stunning. But when she looked at them, all she saw was ugliness.
It was so sad and yet another reminder that everything – everything – is a projection of our own mind.
