This short story is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places and incidents are the product of the author’s imagination and are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual events and persons are coincidental.
There are a million reasons to question who you are. Your own self worth may be fighting an endless internal battle, and both sides won’t give in. One voice tells you, you’re worthless, while the other whispers you are beautiful.
And the world, people, and even yourself all are finding ways to bring you up and tear you down again. Over and over, again and again.
I’ve had enough of this war. I’ve taken as much as I can of the lies and cruelty. When and where did we learn to break each other apart? When did we choose greed and selfishness over kindness and our own humanity?
There are ways to live. And we may choose to fill our hearts with love, or destroy them with hate.
The world has beauty but few want to see it. The world has goodness, but even fewer want to believe it.
I look in the mirror and I decide what kind of person I see.
When you see yourself in the mirror, what do you see?
Letter to Reader,

There are a million reasons to question who you are. Your own self worth may be fighting an endless internal battle, and both sides won’t give in. One voice tells you, you’re worthless, while the other whispers you are beautiful. And when you look in the mirror...what is it that you truly see?
