Kjerstin Gruys Swears Off Mirrors For An Entire Year, Even During Her Wedding! [AUDIO]
Kjerstin Gruys called into “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Tuesday to talk about what made her decide to swear off mirrors for an entire year and chronicle the challenge in a blog titled “Mirror, Mirror, Off The Wall.”
Kjerstin has covered all the mirrors in her home and she no longer allows herself to window shop on her walk to work. She has been avoiding mirrors for five months now and on top of that she is getting married in October. She told us what made her decide to make such a unthinkable decision.
“I was shopping for wedding dresses with my mom and I kind of expected it to be one of those amazing moments in my life, when all I felt were good feelings. Instead I just found myself staring at my body in the mirror for hours on end and picking it apart.”
When Kjerstin was asked what she hoped to hoped to gain from this experience she replied, “I really want to learn about myself and I want to think of myself as more than just somebody who looks good or has a bad hair day. I want to emphasize all the other amazing things I have going on in my life and the unique things that make me myself that don’t have anything to do with my looks.”
