What does your face say?

Portraits of humanity

The children are very similar to each other. How? Their faces show unlimited potential. Every kid can become almost anything. Even with the influence of genes, environment and upbringing, the range of scenarios is unimaginably wide. That’s why a child’s eyes are as fresh as a high mountain spring. And the forehead is as clean as a new canvas.

Looking at an adult, we read the story of his or her life. In addition to the effects of the outside world in the form of bumps, scuffs and scars, over the years, the face more and more accurately reflects the inner world. Dissatisfaction with everyone and everything, that is, with oneself, pulls the corners of the lips downward, as if one had eaten bird droppings. The habit of frequent and intense thinking plows two vertical furrows on the bridge of his nose. You can tell a man who laughs good-naturedly by the ray of wrinkles around his eyes. Constant anxiety throws the triangles of the eyebrows up, “Ah, what happened this time?”

As we know, function determines form, not the other way around. No matter how hard one tries to hide one’s nature, it still comes out through facial expressions. Over several decades, the face reflects a specific emotion a million times — envy and sadness, anger and compassion, etc. A child has a chance to come to harmony with himself, no matter what kind of birth curse he has. At 80 years of age, a person will usually only cement something that has not been fixed in a lifetime.

Knowing all this, I think it makes sense to take a closer look at yourself in the mirror. Do you like where this person is going? If so, hallelujah! If not, well, you know what to do.

Yours sincerely,
