    An old friend will tell the truth. If you look in a real mirror, self delusion may make you think better or worse of youself.

    If you are talking about a real mirror. The same would apply to psychological self-reflection.

    Source(s): But make sure this is an old and real friend.

    Your friends do know you and your experiences best. When you look at them, when you look at the experiences you've had with them, you see who you really are. Because you hide your true self from others, like your parents or teachers or Pastor. But your friends really get the true you. They're your tribe. They're your people.

    But, going forward consider this:

    The trajectory of your life is found in the mirror of your friends' hearts. Choose wisely whose council you take.

    It basically implies that an old friend really knows you, so when you really want to know how you look, ask the old friend. An old friend really sees you the way that you are, and when you just look at yourself in the mirror, you may not see what others see.

    An old friend is someone that should probably really know you, they have seen you in your best and worst and can give you a true "reflection" of who you are.

    Someone who can tell you (truthfully) about yourself

    is someone who has known you a long time.
