These Ladies Aren't Happy With Their Reflection. But Then The Mirror Tells The Truth.

Go on ... take a look!

Ever glance at yourself in the mirror and think something negative?

If you said no, I kind of don't believe you.

These women walked up to a random mirror, and they walked away in a much better mood. Maybe because it started talking.

What would YOU say to a mirror that asked you how you feel when you look in it?

They stuck a futuristic mirror in the middle of a shopping mall. When women walked up to it, a question appeared in front of them:


So they answered. Woof.

But that wasn't all. Images started appearing, and voices started talking through the mirror.

Familiar voices...

Then an unfamiliar voice said, "You are beautiful, not just on the outside, but you are so much in the inside. A moment does not go by that people don't see that."

And ... EMOTIONS.

Her emotions ... AND MINE. #kleenexplease

Then the mystery mirror voice was like "YOU'RE ENOUGH! Now turn around..."

And then all the tears were shed. Because everyone who loved these women ... WERE HIDING BEHIND THE CURTAIN!


And they had flowers...


...and hugs!


Not just this lady, either. So many ladies realized they were enough.

And this is what I realized I felt like while watching:


It really stinks how many of our thoughts on images of ourselves are more negative than positive.

We live in a world that constantly pushes us to be something we're not, something better, something the media tells us we should be, it can be easy to forget how frigging awesome we actually are.

Just the way we are.

I'm gonna grab a Kleenex right quick and send this to my mom. <3

There is a strange right-wing logic that suggests when minorities fight for equal rights it's somehow a threat to the rights already held by those in the majority or who hold power.

Like when the Black Lives Matter movement started, many on the right claimed that fighting for black people to be treated equally somehow meant that other people's lives were not as valuable, leading to the short-lived All Lives Matter movement.

This same "oppressed majority" logic is behind the new Straight Pride movement which made headlines in August after its march through the streets of Boston.

For most of us, the hypothetical question of whether we would stick with a boyfriend or girlfriend through the trials of cancer and the treatments is just that – a hypothetical question. We would like to think we would do the right thing, but when Max Allegretti got the chance to put his money where mouth is, he didn't hesitate for a second.

Where did we go wrong as a society to make women feel uncomfortable about breastfeeding in public?

No one should feel they have the right to tell a woman when, where, and how she can breastfeed. The stigma should be placed on those who have the nerve to tell a woman feeding her child to "Cover up" or to ask "Where's your modesty?"

Breasts were made to feed babies. Yes, they also have a sexual function but anyone who has the maturity of a sixth grader knows the difference between a sexual act and feeding a child.

The Me Too movement has shed light on just how many actresses have been placed in positions that make them feel uncomfortable. Abuse of power has been all too commonplace. Some actresses have been coerced into doing something that made them uncomfortable because they felt they couldn't say no to the director. And it's not always as flagrant as Louis C.K. masturbating in front of an up-and-coming comedian, or Harvey Weinstein forcing himself on actresses in hotel rooms.

But it's important to remember that you can always firmly put your foot down and say no. While speaking at The Hollywood Reporter's annual Actress Roundtable, Jennifer Lopez opened up about her experiences with a director who behaved inappropriately. Laura Dern, Awkwafina, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o, and Renee Zellweger were also at the roundtable.
