Myopia means...

looking in the mirror and seeing your body as somehow alien, not actually yours, as if your head (or your mind) had been tacked onto somebody else.

experiencing the world as irredeemably incomprehensible, something best kept at a distance, too scary to see up close.

believing that if anything goes wrong, it is necessarily all your fault.

distrusting your responses to life, particularly your emotions.

denying the validity of your interests and passions.

putting everyone else's judgment before your own.

believing that you are inherently unlovable.
