“Why are you looking like that?” I have had this question asked of me more times than I can count. My facial expressions are difficult to control when coinciding with the thoughts in my mind. I would love to have a poker face where it’s hard to read my thoughts, but that is not the case. On the flip side, I hope that the expressions that show evoke some type of action on the part of the observer. That “look” that you see should cause one to pause and think about what they are saying or doing, continue on their course of action, back away slowly, run quickly, laugh heartily, show respect, love, or fear. I usually don’t intend to show my thoughts by the look on my face, but there have been more times than not that the situation has caused my face to react before my thoughts could tell my mouth what to say. I offer no apologies because this is who I am, what I am made up of, and how I express myself sometimes without words. There are times when my facial expressions are all I can rely on because the actual words may not express the depth of my emotions. So, if you happen to wonder “Why I’m looking like that?”; take a moment and reflect on what has transpired between us and you may find the answer within yourself because I’m sure it shows on my face.
