On the way to my little cleaning job the other day, I was thinking about job hunting and how long and arduous the process is; for some reason I then started to wonder if the people that pass me by can tell that I’m fed-up and a little lost.
My mind then went off on a tangent… What do people see when they look at me?
I’m aware this question sounds largely egotistical but I do mean it from a personality/emotional standpoint rather than a vain one.
Do strangers just pass me (and others) by, no-one of significance in their lives, just the faceless population that make up the rest of the world? Or do they notice something?
Will they notice if I’m walking with my head high or down low? Can they tell I’m trying to figure them out? Does that guy in his 4×4 realise that I’m checking out his car and not him?
When you walk down the street, do you notice if somebody seems content and relaxed, or a little miffed maybe? Can you tell if they are lost in thought? Do you sense drama or any emptiness in their lives?
And then on a semi-superficial level… what do your clothes say about your personality? do they scream that you are a bit of a bore? Or a try-hard perhaps? Do they make you look smart or too into appearences?
How do your clothes and facial expressions articulate your person? And can anyone really know the person you are?
Pretty deep for a quick walk to work I guess, but that is just how my mind works sometimes.
