I love this both because I could relate to it and because I could see more than one interpretation within it.
I think we all use love to validate ourselves and measure our sense of worth, basking in the image they hold of us and reflect back to us, which is all good until it turns sour.
I have also had literal 'deceptive' mirrors though, and you think you look like that reflection until you go shopping and the shop mirror reflects a different body, and you can't tell which is telling the truth!
An excellent write! :-) x
