People say that the eyes are the windows to the soul. I am aware that the eyes offer a glimpse into your health because most of my visits to the hospital had the doctors checking my eyes to see if they are pale which could indicate an illness. I also heard a saying about how the beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. Recently, I had a video chat with my aunt who is a medical personnel and she said she could see from my eyes that I was stressed and that I needed rest. Another time, a close friend of mine said my eyes showed I was truly happy just from seeing a picture I posted online. All these shows that the eyes actually says a lot about a person.
Sometimes I get scared of a person just by looking into their eyes. As a mum, I often know when my daughter is feeling unwell just by looking into her eyes. Indeed, the eyes says a lot about you and also about others if you are very observant. You can tell when someone is in pain just by looking into their eyes. You can also tell when someone is happy because of how the eyes light up. Although I am not very sure about how possible it is to know when someone is telling a lie by looking into their eyes, because psychologists say people blink a lot when they are telling a lie, but there are professional liars that will still look you in the eyes and tell you the most brilliant lies ever…lol.
My focus is not on the professional liars though, my focus is on the things your eyes say. You need to pay close attention to your eyes and also that of others. In other words, you need to be sensitive to the people around you and know how to help. If it is those that their eyes scream “I am in a lot of emotional pain”, then try to know how to make them smile again. Inasmuch as self love is important, you were not created to live for yourself alone. There are people that have been placed in your life for a reason, so while you cannot help everyone at the same time, you can actually help one person at a time – words of encouragement, a listening ear, a hug, a smile, a thousand naira, a loaf of bread, a cup of rice, a word of prayer, a show of concern, a simple ‘I love you’ or ‘I am here for you’, could just be what someone somewhere needs today.
