A face can tell you a lot about a person, what they like, what they are scared of and most of all what they are thinking at that moment you look into their eyes. I made this book to express how I see emotions on a person’s face. Throughout my childhood I have been able to tell what someone is thinking simply by reading the expression on their face. I can tell if someone is lying and how they feel about me or other people. This may sound good to some, but it isn’t. I am constantly concerned about whether I am annoying someone and I’m shattered by the lies they tell. Through my piece I tried to convey what empaths feel on a daily basis: consistently stressed by consuming people’s emotions and trying to cope.
