If you have ever looked into a mirror, and wondered 'Ah I am not so bad', you are dreadfully wrong. First, mirrors show images in reverse. Second, we see ourselves from a certain perspective that is a particular perspective of our own selves from the point, angle and perception of our own eyes. Third, our faces seem more symmetrical to us when we look into mirrors when they are not. And finally, looking into a mirror and seeing 'not so bad face' is a subconscious coping mechanism of our brains trying to make us feel better and happier when reality is quite the opposite. That is why when you look into a photo of yourself you feel more disgusted, but I'll tell you a secret pal, that is the bitter truth about your face.
