Why a blog?

I give up, easily.
Anything. Everything.
Because of a lack of confidence.

People won't like me, laugh at me, think I'm stupid.
That is why my entire life I hid away, in dark clothes.
Black, dark blue or grey.
Anything to make me invisible.

I never used make-up in high school because I didn't know how.
My hair was always the same because I had no idea what to do with it (ponytail, tightly pulled back, in case you're curious).

When I was 18 I got married and I wanted a change.
I wanted the real me to come out.
But I still had no clue how.

At 26 I started this blog.
So that I wouldn't give up, wouldn't forget where I was going.

This is my journey, feel free to walk it with me, every step of the way.
All my failures, all my mistakes.
But also my winnings, my happy moments and my bliss.
I'll be honored to have you with me.

Lie to me

I've been obsessed,
With this show,
I saw it before,
But now we are watching it again,
On Netflix.

If you haven't seen it,
Grab your remote,
And start bingwatching it,
It's awesome.

All my life,
I could spot,
When people were lying,
Most of the time,
But I could never put my finger on it,
About why I thought,
They were lying.

In this show,
If you're like me,
You'll find out,
It all has to do with expressions,
The truth is written on our faces,
We can't help it,
It goes automatically.

And what's even more amazing,
The key expressions,
Like anger, joy or disgust,
Are universal,
Meaning that it doesn't matter,
What your race,
Or culture is,
It's the same,

There are only three seasons,
And that's a real shame,
When this ends,
I'll fall into a black hole,
Nothing will ever compare,
And I will go trough a mourning period,
Like I do after every great tv show,
That ever ends.

There is a but,
It is based on the life work,
Of Paul Ekman,
And he wrote a bunch of books.

I ordered all of them,
About four,
So I still have something to look forward to,
After I devoured them all,
Avoiding the black hole,

And have been even more intrigued,
On the subject,
The man,
And his investigations.

The last two weeks I've been trying it out,
Looking for the things he describes,
Trying to read people,
And if I think they are lying,
I'm on the look out,
For expressions,
And micro expressions.

It works,
And I absolutely love it,
Finally I can say,
Why I think someone is lying,
But when you established that you are right about it,
The weird thing is,
That you don't feel the need anymore,
To spell it out.

The conformation,
That you are right,
Is more then enough,
Most of the time.

You feel more confident,
More in control,
And you start to understand,
Your own emotions,
How you react,
And why you react in that way.

It helps you,
To get a better insight,
In other people,
And the world get's less scary,
Because the seven key emotions,
Are universal,
The same,
For every human being.
