Transgender and wanting to avoid mirrors?

Whenever I look in the mirror it's like I'm looking at a stranger or something. I don't expect to see what I see in the mirror. I want to avoid looking in mirrors bc I feel a lot better about myself when I don't look in one. The way I see myself in my head makes me feel better about myself. I don't know what to do about this though. I'm FTM but I can't make efforts to make myself look like how I feel on the inside because nobody is accepting. Does anybody else feel this way? And how do you cope with it? Do I keep avoiding the mirror or what

    I would try avoiding mirrors where ever possible until you can project the image you want. I only have one mirror in my house for having a shave and that is it. Just where you can, avoid having mirrors, like in your bedroom and stuff, etc.
