the eyes have it

It is true what they say: the eyes are a window into the soul. Mine used to conspire against me but they no longer do. If you are feeling well on the inside and understand who you are, your expression and by extension your eyes will reflect it.

This is why we speak of confidence being the heavy lifter in letting people see the real you. I don't care how good you look on this outside; without that we have nothing.

The crucial step is getting off the merry-go-round of public approval because we are always going to be too thin, too fat, too loud, too meek or too something for someone else. We will never find true contentment without that permanent unbranching from a fickle public opinion which knows nothing of your life but is only too happy to try and derail it.

Even my own version of a life as a woman will find disfavor from some in our community but that is their problem and not mine.

All we need to know is that the eyes have it.
