Resting Face


If you don't know what chill face or resting face means, lemme try to explain. That is the usual blank look most people have and I have to say that I have a weird one. Maybe no one cares about their face when going down the street, but I really do because mine is kinda sad. Not that I'm depressed or sad all the time but my face looks like I am. Over the past few months, I'm trying to change it but so far nothing. Same emotionless face. It kinda looks like the 'resting bitchy face' that is a common thing for more people.
I got so many people asking me "Are you fine?". Not that I'm feeling great but it's fine I don't need to explain my feelings I guess. Just tired, always. From whole 'life' thing. I'm always thinking what to publish and what not to publish, but I'm going to be real and post any thing that's on my mind because that's why blogs are existing

Please tell me in the comments what your resting face looks like. :)

  1. I always thought that the most neutral my face could get is when I am sleeping! :)

    1. That is an interesting notion. I was not aware of the 'resting face' phenomenon until I read your blog post. I don't know if you have heard about micro expressions? These are expressions people make in different situations that reveal some hidden emotions or states of mind they are not conscious of. Wiki says: "The concept has been studied by psychologists and may have psychological implications on facial biases, gender stereotypes, human judgment, and decision making." Having thoughts under control is not easy at all... Even if we can control the surface thinking there is still a lot more going on in the subconscious mind.

  3. It all actually depends on my mood. I mostly smile when my child is in front of me, which is all the time when I am or he is not sleeping.

  6. My resting face looks like I don't give a care what people say. That's why when my wife looks at me and see my resting face, she knows what I mean already.

  11. I am guessing my resting face probably looks tired. I am always so tired lately. I can't wait for a few more weeks when I am done classes for the semester.
