Do we see our true selves in front of the mirror?As human beings, we all have our own strengths and weaknesses. As far as strengths are concerned, there is absolutely no harm; there is no problem at all. The problem is with our weaknesses, which can be extremely harmful to our family members and for the wider society as well.
It is in this context that looking at our true selves in front of the mirror at home may be useful. The mirror is more than our self-image. It is far more. When we pause for a few seconds and recollect al the mistakes that we did the previous day, it will become obvious that we had hurt someone, uttered a harsh word, or simply been arrogant. For instance, we ventilate all our frustration at the office on the poor servant maid. Or on our wives or husbands.
If we can recollect such instances and then try to avoid repeating the same, the world will be and become a far better place to live in. The entire world will be one where the menace of all our human weaknesses will possibly diminish to a larger extent. Of course, we will still have the most horrible politicians who do politics on the basis of religion or exploit people. However, at least we can be different. When we see our real selves, the world will change at least to some extent.
