It Looked Like Me


It was after midnight sometime and everyone was sleeping in their rooms with their doors closed and all of the lights where off except for my room and the bathroom. If you were coming from the living room; the bathroom was the first door on the right, followed by a closet, my parents room, straight shot down the hall was my room, and on the left was my brothers bedroom.

I was bored so I went to my dresser to play with my hair and experiment with make-up. My dresser was right next the my bedroom door which was open so I could see straight down the hall. As I was looking in the mirror and putting on make-up, I noticed a movement on the side of my eye so glanced down the hall and like in slow motion, I see these beat up old boots; a long, old time skirt, and a button up shirt. Then, I get to the face and I see this girl that looks like me, but in old time clothes. She was light skinned and had long black hair and she was standing by the bathroom, looking back towards the living room and as she glanced toward me, I quickly turn around toward the mirror and act like I didn't even notice her.

For some reason I wasn't scared because it looked like me. I was calm, but probably due to me being more in shock then anything else. I felt it looking at me so I acted like I was done putting my make-up on and stood up and walked out of sight of the door and hallway. That's when I freaked, I started praying and just stood there and waited for it come down the hall and into my room, but there was nothing so thinking maybe it could have been my sister and because it seemed so real I decide to walk down the hall way and look into the bathroom and the living room. Nothing! No one! The only thing that I can come up with was that I caught glimpse of a past life or it was a doppelganger playing a trick on me. Either way it was freaky and life altering.

Lady_Bug81- Wow that was super freaky! Gave me goose bumps! Sure wish I had some words of encouragement or answers. I'm kind of at a loss of words.
Doppelganger maybe, past ancestor maybe, don't have a clue absolutely.
Keep us updated on anymore occurrences.

Do you live in an old family home? Has the land your home is on been in your family long? If so maybe it is an ancestor who looks much like you

Hi Lady_Bug81! I think whatever you had seen could be refer to Doppelganger. It is a look-alike or double of a living person who is sometimes referred to bad luck and in some culture to death.
