When we see a face every day, we form emotional connections that override our objective perception. The face isn’t just a collection of features anymore; it’s a vessel of shared memories, conversations, and emotions. Our judgments become clouded by these layers of personal connection, making it impossible to see them the way a stranger would.
“Emotion can be the enemy, if you give into your emotion, you lose yourself. You must be at one with your emotion, because the body always follows the mind.” – Bruce Lee
