Facial Expressions: Express Yourself In A Better Way


Facial Expression: Express Yourself In A Better Way

Facial expression is a very important gesture of communication. The more active you look, the more people will be interested to communicate with you. So you can master facial expressions by observing people, by letting your actual feelings come out of yourself and expressing yourself easily with facial gestures. While talking, use your eyes, eyebrows, and lips to express the reaction.

Observe other people’s expressions, see dramas, and dance to learn different expressions and their significance. Practice before the mirror. Actively participate in such activities and you can even join an acting school for this.

Ways To Be An Expert In Facial Expression

The only way you can master facial expressions is by diligent study. It may take years to do so, but it will be worth it.

One thing that helps a lot is watching reality shows that involve a lot of actual, closet drama. Such would be for example court cases, where you can see people being filmed in real-time. Record a video and then watch those twice: once with the sound completely muted, then with the sound on. See how you did compare both observations.

It is important to say, that once you learn that, you can’t unlearn it, it will always be with you. While it sounds good initially, be aware that you’ll know when people are going to talk to you, you’ll know by their facial expressions what’s going on in their thoughts at that time.

Different Ways To Control Your Facial Expression

I am one of those people who are labeled as “expressing no emotions”. Many of the people who know me for a long time have the same comment. Some of them told me I should do a job that doesn’t require emotions. So why does this happen?

My inherent face structure. It looks naturally serious, or always at the state of “resting face”.

My insecurity – I am highly emotional and sensitive and easily affected (getting upset, crying, or getting angry) by other people’s comments. I have been aware of this since I was a small child. Therefore, I have tried and practiced through the years, so that I don’t look upset or switching to any other emotional state whenever I hear someone talk shit about me. What I feel inside is a different story.

Methods Of Controlling In A Better Way

My social surrounding No. 2. I used to facially show how I felt. Then I got laughed at and made fun of. Whenever I smiled or showed happiness, I was responded by indifference or being mocked. People said why I had to pretend like someone I am not. So after a while, I decided to NOT show anything and NOT smiling to anyone and NOT treating nicely to anyone, to avoid being the target of mocking.

Whenever I was sad or cried, I was responded by more shouting and yelling, or again, indifference. If I get irritated and show it out, I would be labeled as “having an attitude” and “being a bad child”. Hence my facial expression becomes neutral, all the time.

As I hide all my facial expressions, I become easily depressed. To overcome it, I write a diary. This is how I ditch out all of the toxic emotions.

It is not a healthy habit, so I would recommend not to do. I am now trying to reverse this long-term habit, but it is not easy. However, if you do a job in which a poker face is appreciated, it might be of help.

Facial expression is a very sensitive matter. If you learn the whole method of this, then you can grow your personality.
