Eyes are the window to the soul

It’s been said that eyes are the window to the soul and some scientists have even confirmed this in a study that was carried out by the University of Melbourne. Whether this is true or not or whether this might just words uttered by Shakespeare or Leonardo DaVinci, I believe that feelings can be seen in your eyes. Whether you are hurt or happy or sad or angry, your eyes give you away.

Looking through all the photos that has been made of me, I realized that in many of them you can indeed see my feelings, my emotions. Some of them show me in a mischievous mood, others show me with tears in my eyes during a flogging session. Yet another shows me looking into the camera in concentration and in others it seems like I was angry or at the very least feeling uncomfortable with the camera pointing in my direction. And then, just sometimes, there’s a photo in there that I really like, that shows me how I really am, that has not caught me in an awkward moment. I am not ready to share all of my face with you, but I can share my eyes with you.

I have always been a very emotional person. When I am happy, I am intensely happy. When I am sad, I cry until my eyes are red and puffy. When I am angry, I want to scream and throw things, but am doing less so the older I get. When I am hurt or I think/feel I have hurt someone, I am sad and upset and down for days, until I have found peace within myself again. I tend to do everything to the extreme. I trust easily, get hurt easily. I easily have fond and loving feelings towards people and if they hurt me, those fond feelings can turn to the total opposite of the scale and become ugly. However, even if the feelings turn to the darker side, I will never be mean to someone, unless they have me with my back against the wall. I will much rather just keep quiet and let them be. I don’t like hurting people, even if they have hurt me. Having these intense emotions is not always easy and thankfully, since Master T is a much more rational person than I am, He helps me to keep the balance between the rational and emotional aspects in my life.

This post ties in with the sixth challenge of the 26 by 26 website:
Decide upon an emotion you wish to convey, use that as your guide to build your story.

  1. I always feel that looking at someone’s eyes is one of the most intimate things you can do – even though we’re geographically separated and have never met, somehow I feel I know things about you by just looking at the images of your eyes.

    I’m certainly not brave enough to put pictures of my face on my blog and my eyes would be the hardest bit to show.

    1. I find it comforting to know you looked deep into my eyes. It wasn’t easy to set the step to posting these pictures, but I feel comfortable with it now. However, I would not put my face on here.

  2. The anger must be a redhead thing… I have it too. Like you though, I have mellowed with age.

    1. I am actually a blond (dark blond) by nature, but feel much more comfortably as a red head, as if it suits me better 🙂

      And I’m glad my anger has mellowed with age.

  3. I love that you shared your eyes with us, and also had a snippet to lend support to the different emotions on display.
    Such a lovely challenge, and unique way to tell its own story.

    1. Thank you. It was a bit scary sharing my eyes, but after discussing it with Master T, I decided to go ahead 🙂

  4. I agree with you. A person can tell a lot by looking into a person’s eyes. Great photo selection showing your different emotions through your eyes.
    I believe that people share an emotional connection when looking at each other in the eyes for long periods of time, more so during sex. It’s scary when you can look a person in the eyes & you get nothing, no response, their eyes are empty..that’s creepy to me.
    Great post!

    1. Oh indeed, to see emptiness in someone’s eyes is terrible. My eyes really give away my emotions very quickly. Of course my face helps with that, but my eyes are really the true windows to my soul.

      Thanks for your comment 🙂
