THE FACE READER - 79/365
"What's the matter you look frightened? Do you want to talk about it? Is there anything I can do to help?
What do you mean you're just reacting to the look on MY face - I'm just concerned about the look on YOURS."
I wonder how many times I've mis-read someone's facial expression?
I think they're bored but they're sad, I think they're angry but they're scared, I think they're happy but they're hurt. So, why not "ask" instead of assuming I know the answer simply by the look on their face?
What if a "mis-read" face could be a missed opportunity to build a stronger bond and a closer relationship? Wouldn't that be worth taking the time to check my assumption for accuracy?
What do you do when an expression "speaks" to you?
