Why You Hate The Way Other People See And Hear You

"We grow up getting used to all of our asymmetries as reflected in the mirror—parting our hair to the left, the little mole on our right cheek, that chip in our left incisor. When we see a photo of ourselves, all of these tiny differences don’t match up with what our brain expects to see, so we dislike it. Likewise, we live our lives hearing and perfecting our bone-conducted, but not air-conducted, voices."

I suffer from residual self-image, which sometimes leads to a third pancake.

Mostly I'm afraid that mirror-me will drag me into his unearthly hell-realm.

@deepomega Pretty sure that's the other way round.
