Hello. The issue that I am having is that when I look into a mirror it looks like my face is too small compared to my body, but when I take pictures of myself or shoot a video of myself my face doesn't look as small, it actually looks slightly bigger I guess. I don't understand it, I just hate putting clothes on and then seeing myself in the mirror because the mirror makes me look like I have a small short face. I'm about 5'6 or 5'7 140 pounds. I started to lift weights when I was younger, I don't know if my body size is possibly making my face look smaller or what. My chest(pecs) are I guess pretty big and my arms and biceps are a lot bigger than they used to be, plus I guess I may have gained some weight also. I don't know if it is the mirror, my body, or what though. It just looks wierd when I view myself in mirrors, it almost looks like someone took a small head and stuck onto a body that doesn't match the head. I mean its not really really bad or anything, but it is pretty noticable I guess, I can't help to stare everytime I look in the mirror.
