Perception and self-image: Is your self-image real or distorted?

When you have a negative self-image, you won’t see reality as it is. You’ll filter everything out that might challenge your belief and you’ll see everything that supports it. Every day, you’ll find lots of clues that will support the false mental picture that you have of yourself.

When you look in the mirror, you’ll only focus on those body parts or facial features that you believe are ‘defective’ and they’ll appear more defective than they actually are.
