A Mirror of Soul

Though, we exist physically... we emotionally wanna disappear.

A Mirror of Soul

She was the lady everyone likes to see. As I kept on staring at her I noticed that she has slightly big eyes paired with long lashes and a pointed nose, her cheekbones are really attractive and her lips are perfectly shaped, I can’t deny, it is something any man would love to kiss. And when she smiles, you could see the beautiful braces holding her white teeth.  She has a great curve as well. You can compare her boobs into a baby’s butt. Her long legs are so flawless that it can make every man drool. Her butt helps her achieve an hourglass body. Her alluring looks never fail to capture the eye of anyone she will pass through.  She has a tan skin. And she smells really great. She walks like a model and her elegance was enough to satisfy this world.

She is way far different from me. She will never be me. But, in some way, I dreamed to be like her. Society comes after her. Everyone likes her. Unlike me, I am a silent voice hiding in a dark corner. And in this society filled with fake people, face faces and judgemental citizens…people like me is not accepted. Though, we exist physically… we emotionally wanna disappear. People used to love faces and curves. They are into physical aspects.

The person made her insecure, told her she wasn’t good enough but who they are to judge when you’re a diamond in the rough.

This reminds people to embrace and accept what God gave us, we must love our own self and our own flaws. People nowadays focus on other people’s attractiveness that we forget our own self.

The first paragraph of the article depicts the Physical Self. The author describes how beautiful and how everyone would like to see this person whose the author describing. Every girl is beautiful in their own way, however, there are times that there are conscious of their looks because they look on other girl’s beauty. They thought they are more beautiful than themselves. In other word, there insecure of themselves and of others. So they become conscious of their looks. But the other reason of why women are so conscious about their looks is maybe they just want to look good… Read more »

When I was reading this article I felt so sad for that girl that she wants to be like that woman that has some physical looks that everyone would admire, but in this world you must accept your true and real self because you don’t need to be like them and be famous like them. Just be yourself and just stay away from them and also don’t compare yourself with other people because each of one of us has a unique personality and looks that will make people admire you the most than other people.

The first paragraph of the article talks about the physical self. The articles refers on how ladies nowadays craves for a perfect face and figure. Their fancies for having an impeccable image was a result on how our society matters the outer beauty than inner beauty. With that, most of the women nowadays are trying their best to look flawless in the eyes of the society. However, as they try to look perfect, they are not aware that little by little, they forgot who really they are. For me as a man, I think look does not matter at all.… Read more »

1. Since physical self is about our relationship with our body, in the article, the part that talks about ohysical self is when the author tries to point out here that she is a nobody in the community compared to the girl that she describes in the first oaragraph. Not all, but some women used to always underestimate themselves because they care more about appearance. It always bother them on how they looks from the point view of other people. Maybe because they are consequential. Meaning that it always matters to them about the feedbacks or comment of other people… Read more »

Mirror of Soul Which part of the article talks about Physical Self and why do you think are women so conscious about their looks? As a woman, are you? As a man, how does looks weigh in being attracted to women? The first paragraph talks about physical self or physical appearance of a woman. It describes what a woman is supposed to look like from head to toe. A woman is being conscious about what or how they will look like because they are afraid of rejection or being neglected from anyone even from the man she wants. Based on… Read more »

I must say that every woman in this world is insecure of her looks because people really appreciate looks at first stance than the whole being of an individual. Why do you think so? Are you one of those people who just based firstly on the outer side of a person? Well if yes, you must think of ways to further see the goodness of a person deep within. And if you are not, then I congratulate you for exercising humanity deep within you. Based on the article I have read, “A Mirror of Soul” the persona tries to compare… Read more »

The first part of the first paragraph talks about the physical self where the writer or the author describes how the other lady looks like and compares it to herself. Beauty is being a privilage in this generation. Most people are focusing and giving more importance to those who are beautiful so I think the people around us or even us is the one to blame about this issue. After reading this article I came up with the thought that everyone is beautiful and we shouldn’t compare others to ourselves. But being honest, having the prettiest girl or my ideal… Read more »

The second paragraph, she describe her physical self, the way she’s(the girl described in the first paragraph) better looking than her. The way she is damage from it, that this girl is far more beautiful than her and that the girl will never be more beautiful than her. Obviously nobody want to look ugly in purpose, we all care about our looks. women tend to care more than men, because women tend to compare their looks to other. They see actresses and other artist as a role model. They are very competitive that even their looks is a competition. And… Read more »

The first part of the article talks about the Physical self where the author descibes the physical appearance or looks of the other girl and compares it to herself. I think, women are conscious about their looks because of their environment. They are being judged by the people around them and assessing women by the way they look. Beauty affects the various aspects like in job application, community’s acceptance and many things like that. As a man, I also do have my own qualities and standards of woman that I like. Having a girl that has that qualities as my… Read more »

Act 181 1. Which part of the article talks about Physical Self and why do you think are women so conscious about their looks? Are you conscious about how you look and how you register to other people? Why? In the first paragraph, I notice that the author is describing the physical attributes or what we call physical-self of another girl. It’s the part of the article where the author is stating the figure and the beautiful physical aspects of someone she knows. After that, in the last paragraph, the author started comparing herself on someone and I think that… Read more »

ACT 185. As a teenager we always examine our physical appearance than our values and morals in life which is the opposite.The best example here is the celebrities, most of them got the looks but still they having a difficult time in finding their partners for life, maybe because they more often to look on the physical appearance than to the beauty of the soul of the person. We must remember that the beauty fades but the kindness and moral always remains. For the woman who feel depression and anxiety as a man and as a friend I will make… Read more »

ACT 181 Marian Lourd Asinas The part where the Physical self is present is when the persona describes the physical attributes of the lady. Women tends to be over conscious with their looks because people nowadays only look for the physical appearance of the women. Also, when you don’t have the face that they were looking for, it’s either you will be judge or you will be rejected, and that’s how cruel the society is. As a woman, of course sometimes I am so conscious on how do I look and how other people perceives me but then, this is… Read more »

1. Yeah, maybe most of the people are looking at the physical characteristics of a one person and that’s what the article is pointing out. For men???, me as a man, of course yeah, I also look at the physical aspects of the woman coz I’m not denying that it’s the most attractive thing that a guy will consider before he’ll be attracted to a woman, but mens aren’t the all the same. Like me, I also look first at the physical aspects of a woman but what will I considered the most is who she really is because that’s… Read more »

WEEK 5 1 The author describe in the first sentence the characteristic of a person by that she manage to describe the physical self of other people. As a man I live with the stereotyping of the society that if a girl has a white skin, long legs , straight hair , rosy cheeks , red lips , and snow white teeth the boys are dazzle and would do anything to have her, but in reality for looks is just a minor part of being attracted to women because for me I want to know the real deal or the… Read more »

* Which part of the article talks about Physical Self and why do you think *women are so conscious about their looks? The first paragraph talks about the physical self. The author described a woman with great features that people, specially men, usually admire in a woman. I think women are so conscious about their looks because it is what society made them feel. Society praises perfection. People live with different standard of beauty. Standards that come from what social media is feeding us. Women feel insecure when they don’t reach these standards. They feel left out. Because whether people… Read more »

ACT 186 1. The first paragraph talks about physical self, the narrator were delineating about how her ideal feature would look like. She’s describing the girl from head to toe and how that girl slay in every aspects. I think there’s no one who isn’t conscious about how he/she will look like, everyone wants to be presentable in front of many people, it is not about making yourself stand out, or dressing for other people because you have someone you wanted to look at you the way you wanted to be looked at. For me, its about satisfying yourself on… Read more »

ACT 181 I think the article entitled “A mirror of soul” is all about dreaming to be perfect in terms of face and body. This article is just like a cat seeing itself as a lion, were the cat dreaming to be brave or to be the king of the jungle/forest. Just like the character in the article, I think she is looking in the mirror and seeing herself a beautiful person with a perfect body and have a symmetrical faces. The physical self in the article is in the first part were the author herself describe and examined the… Read more »

ACT186 Physical self can be seen at the first part of this article, when she described her ideal physical self. A physical self that people around would surely love. A physical self that was very accepted in this society. We, women are very conscious on what we looks. Why? because for me, we are afraid to be judge and to be hated. In my personal experience, If you doesn’t look good, people would not choose you as a friend and no one will entertain you and more likely, you are only an option. You are not worth to be presented… Read more »

ACT186 1. The first paragraph depicts the physical self where the author perceives someone’s self and describes her physical attributes stating her figures and physical aspects of beauty. And later, she started comparing herself on the girl. Maybe it is because, the nature of individuals like girls are conscious on how they look on the public. Sometimes it affects how they build their confidence because someone has greater looks than hers and the judgment of others affects their self-esteem and the way they flaunt their selves on public. The reason why most of the women are conscious on how they… Read more »

The whole article tackles the physical self, we can’t deny that in today’s society a beautiful face and a curvy body have a big impact on how other people will treat you, if you lack on those aspects then you will be treated less. And I think that is one of the reason why many women are very conscious in regards to their physical appearance because the society says it all. As a woman living in this millennial period, I can’t deny that I am very conscious in terms of my physical appearance but somehow I can’t manage to be… Read more »

Rachelle Anne M. Villacorte ACT 181 Physical Self was evident in the article when the author describes the woman she wants to be and when she said that people always look for physical aspects. As a woman, I think the reason of being conscious in ourselves is the want to be appreciated, the want to be loved and most of all, the want to be accepted as who we are. I admit that even I, was very conscious of myself simply because, for me, the way I look describes my personality or as to who I am as a person.… Read more »

An article entitled “A Mirror of Soul” talks about the physical self, particularly its first part that tackles the physical attributes that everyone might adore. Women are too conscious about their looks because good façade brings out the confidence within them. It helps to boost your integrity when it comes to believing yourself. Other than that, it also gives courage to face every people assuring yourself that you are brimming with confidence. As for me, yes, I am conscious of how the way I look like and I think everyone does that especially women. It’s actually a good attitude for… Read more »

The first paragraph shows the Physical Self of someone by describing her looks and how she became the apple of the eye of everybody. Women these days are fond of taking care of their faces and looks. Having good looks and perfect body also became a standard for every men. That’s why in today’s generation, body/face shaming became a trend. Even a 12 year old kid already has skin care routine or she is now going to gym at her early age. At my 12 year old self , the most important thing is to play outside our house and… Read more »

1.For me, looks are the first thing you notice in a woman. From head to toe you judge her without knowing her. As a man, we always dream of women who are sexy, beautiful and can give you the pleasure you want, but i always value the inner self of a woman after knowing her

2. I would tell her that looks are just what we see, there is something deeper inside you. Something we can all value and we can treasure

1. Physical self defined as the tangible aspect of a person that can be directly observed and the article talks about that when the author describes the physical characteristics of the woman. It describes the height, curve and every little thing that the author noticed to the perfection of the girl. I think we, women are conscious about our looks because it gives us confidence to face people that surrounds us in our everyday life. Like me, i am still conscious about my everyday look even if i have a boyfriend because it makes me comfortable, i don’t like to… Read more »

After she describe the appearance, she compare herself/ she compare her looks to the appearance of the other girl. I think it is a nature of every women to be conscious to their appearance, because we are curious on how good our looks is or sometimes, if we think that if we have a good looks, our confidence to face different people are increasing. We may not be able to get shy when we are accompanying other people and… Read more »

1. The part where the narrator talks about physical self is the second paragraph. She did describe herself, that she was nothing compared to the lady she was talking about on the first paragraph of the text. For me, women are so conscious about their looks because they want that satisfaction for their own. Now some would say, they would like to look good for the guys or they’re trying to impress someone but honestly, it is just all about self satisfaction and I think that’s normal because, growing up means that you are aware of how you look and… Read more »

“But, in some way, I dreamed to be like her. Society comes after her. Everyone likes her.” For me this part of the article shows that women are so concious about their looks. Some women compare their looks with others. That somehow shows that they are concious about the way they look because if they don’t care about their physical appearance why would they compare their selves with others. This triggers some women to improve the way they look but I am not saying that all women are like this because there are also women that do not care too… Read more »

Because now a day we define a person as beautiful depends on their looks. As a young woman I can say that sometimes I am really conscoius on my look. I sometimes depend it to the people I will meet.
