In continuation of my reflections on the Mirror, I came across this relevant piece on lessons from a mirror…
3 lessons mirror teach us.
1. It reflects things as it is , whatever stain or dirt in our face , it never adds or reduce it.
We should learn to show (whether it is our spouse, children, relatives or friends,)others merits or faults just as they are. Never exaggerate or hide just because of our prejudices. Never make mountain out of a molehill or viseversa.
2. The mirror reflects only when we are in front of it. Once we move away it becomes silent.
Learn to praise or complaint to the person directly when they are face to face . Never backbite. Appreciate them personally or talk about their defects that bother you in person, Never to a third person when they are not there.
3 The third lesson is we never get angry with the mirror because it is showing the stains or defects in our face.
Similarly when someone points out our defects we should learn to thank them instead of getting angry or hurt and try to correct our faults.
Next time whenever you stand in front of a mirror, remember these lessons.
