I am not sure who gets the initial credit for this quote, but for the sake of this post it’ll go to Charles Cooley.

Cooley introduced the “looking-glass self” that poses, self-image is formed largely by the messages we get from others and an individuals’ interpretation of those messages.

Screen Shot 2013-05-20 at 4.04.57 PMI love this painting. It has many interpretations and like most pieces of art, what it ‘says’ to you is a reflection of your thoughts; it will speak differently to every viewer.

What or how do you see yourself? Is it based off the way others see you? Is your self-perception positive? Is it true? Are you working to change it? Is perception really reality?
