Have you ever looked at someone, even an intelligent and well-educated person, whose eyes seem to be dead, as if all their hurts and pain have led them to shut down in some way. This is what happens when you don’t follow your true path in life: You live based on what other people tell you do, don’t pay attention to your inner voice, treat others poorly, and gradually build a shell around you that hardens with time. You lose touch with your true feelings and your eyes deaden as the light inside them fades. To be genuinely happy in life it’s vital to be yourself, not some zombie who pretends to being doing well. Forget about all the fake stuff that tries to lure you away from yourself and spend your time discovering who you are and living authentically. What will you do to avoid developing dead eyes?
