Left and right are the only directions which are described relative to the observer. Up and down (and north, south etc) are independent of whichever way you're facing. when you look in the mirror, up,  down, east and west are stil


in the same place. But you read printed text from left to right - not east to west - hence the problem with 'mirror writing'.I might be wrong of course maybe the chis forumers can help
