Eye certainly express emotions. As a counselor, there are times, clients will not look at me or anyone for that matter. Fear, shame, guilt, uncomfortable, timid, anger etc.
We are in a society where a lack of eye contact is “normal.” It does not have to be normal. We can change that, but getting social and being more friendly and open to other people. We seem to focus on the differences of others and needing to prove our individual point instead of learning about others’ viewpoints. Social media has contributed to the lack of eye contact and the need to post how “wonderful life really is.” But it’s just that a post, it is a second of some ones’ life captured. But look into their eyes, look into their soul and find out more about a person. That is how we can change.
