IMAGES & MIRAGES
"I HAVE AN IMAGE TO MAINTAIN!" Much of our emotional energy is spent on either upholding or changing our image. We should care about our image, but we can care too much. When does concern about our image become a problem? It becomes a problem when we care more about what people think we are than we care about what we really are. We can have a great image, and not be such a great person. We can also be a great person, and have an image problem. Appearances can be deceiving.
What are the mirages? Maybe it’s a girl starving herself because she wants to look like a model, or a guy taking steroids so he can look ripped. Maybe we think smoking will make us look cool, or maybe we try the drugs or drink only because we don’t want to look "un-cool." Those are the mirages. They seem like ways to make your life better. They look real. But are they what they seem to be?
