Psychopusher: Because self-delusion is healthy.

The disturbing thing is that it probably is. The people with an accurate view of themselves are generally the ones who are clinically depressed.

GoldSpider: Psychopusher: Because self-delusion is healthy easier than improving exercise and diet habits.


Take your hate filled thin privilege elsewhere.

Pinner: Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: pute kisses like a man: seems pretty stupid.  so you feel good about yourself while alone in the bathroom, and deciding what to wear.

then, the moment you're in public, you see your self as much fatter than you expected, wearing clothes that are inappropriate for your body type, and basically you just feel terrible.

/ better to feel terrible alone.  otherwise you'll endanger your relationships with other people.  and by endanger, i mean not make them.  i don't mean lose friends that actually exist.

I saw it more as a cheap way for people to get some self confidence, which would make more of a difference in their lives than the handful of pounds this mirror hides.

Yeah, they leave the house with their head up and feeling good, thinking their gunt doesn't look so bad.
Then someone on the street calls them fatty, and they Rascal their way home.

that's the way i picture it.  they have a false sense of confidence at home.  but the moment they walk outside and see their reflection in a window or real mirror, and that false confidence gets destroyed.

better to see yourself honestly at home so there's no shock at your real reflection in public.  in fact, it's probably better to have a fat mirror at home, so you look better in public.
