I’ll Be Your Mirror

I’ll be your mirror
Reflect what you are, in case you don’t know
I’ll be the wind, the rain and the sunset
The light on your door to show that you’re home

When you think the night has seen your mind
That inside you’re twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands
‘Cause I see you

I find it hard to believe you don’t know
The beauty that you are
But if you don’t let me be your eyes
A hand in your darkness, so you won’t be afraid

When you think the night has seen your mind
That inside you’re twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands
‘Cause I see you

I’ll be your mirror

The Velvet Underground

We are all mirrors for one another. The truth is, like you, I have been hurt. Like you, I don’t want to be hurt again, nor do the people that we have hurt. What we can do is have integrity; we can treat one another respectfully. Although you or I may be having a challenging time in our lives’, that doesn’t mean someone else should carry our burden. Chances are that that person has their own challenges.  Being a mirror, means, not only seeing the other person, but most importantly seeing yourself. Seeing your self for the beauty, for the darkness, for the twisted and the kind that we all as human beings have to offer.

It isn’t about being perfect. What is perfect anyways? There is, you, there is, I, and through being leaders for ourselves we lead others. Since being a child I have been told, ‘treat others as you would like to be treated.’ I will be honest, I am human, I have made mistakes-big ones, and I haven’t always executed that theory. However, I have always walked away from a broken friendship, a break up, learning something valuable about myself. The lessons I have walked away with, the new awareness I have had for myself hasn’t always been pretty. The lessons have been hard, and at times, humiliating. On the other side of that, I have had realizations that I am pretty fantastic. I am a good person. I have also had the realization sitting amongst good friends that I am not alone in these feelings or experiences because after all, we are all mirrors for one another.
