Replace your lying mirror with an honest one

The mirror told her, “How gorgeous you are!”

Her mind whispered, “Why not a selfie?”

Tried in different angles, different poses, and different looks.

But nothing came out well.

She thought, “Hmm, it’s time to replace my phone”

Someone else whispered, “Better you replace the lying mirror with an honest one

    Maybe the mirror was right, she is beautiful, she has a pure heart and eternal soul which is true beauty. Her phone just could not capture that.

      Hopefully, no technology would be able to truly capture things like a pure heart and eternal soul. Those two attributes are infinite, while technology……isn’t.

        For sure they are, but isn’t it true that eyes show them up, of we have the desire to see it.

    Hahahahaha…!!! Unfortunately my mirror is TOO honest. But if that gravatar is any indication, you don’t have to worry… your mirror is NOT lying to you, the selfies are. Vishal, Josh, I agree with you guys.

    This is SO funny! But I know a number of men who would get a new phone for the exact same reason – it failed to capture their “beauty!” 😀

    People don’t tell the truth all the time on your face.. just in order to be polite.
    Even we are not true to ourselves. Sometimes We turn s blind eye towards our faults

    hope she understands the sarcasm otherwise, it would be quite tough for her to find the right mirror.

    beautiful lines, dear Akhila!

    love and light <3
