It’s true, I wear my heart on my sleeve + my emotions on my face. I am not one of those girls who can keep my feelings in-check and show a strong front if I am broken on the inside. Similarly, if I am over joyed + enthusiastic, I cannot keep those emotions locked in… my happiness needs to be let out!
When I was a little girl, I remember my mom telling me, she always knew if I didn’t like a birthday or christmas gift because of the expression on my face. If I loved it, I would light up. If I was less than thrilled, that ‘meh’ look was plastered across my face. I just could not fake my emotions + this characteristic has stuck with me as I have grown.
I struggle with keeping my emotions in check and in most situations, I don’t necessarily think its a bad thing. Yes, there are those moments when I wish I could be better at ‘faking it’… in a professional setting, when I inadvertently end up hurting someone’s feelings or those moments when I get the wrong impression of someone but it is hard to seem so delighted + thrilled in a situation you don’t like. I envy those who can poker-face any situation but I can’t. Just like this quote says, I couldn’t be fake about anything if I tried. Love it or hate it, right or wrong, I wear my emotions on my sleeve + my expressions on my face.
