I see...

Updated: Apr 23, 2023

My lopsided vision in art. Bell’s palsy is the weakness of one side of one’s face, cause unknown but believed to be the result of a viral infection or blunt trauma. It usually resolves itself over time. In rare cases, like me, you can be born with it and have it be permanent. As a result, muscle movements of the face are asymmetrical. This has been a cause of insecurity for me for a long time, and while conventional wisdom is not to care what people think, the reality is that people judge and perceive others by how they look, in relationships and just being taken serious. I don’t have an answer of what to do or think about this. But I’ I don’t have control of how people see me and I’m learning to not hold on to the weight as if I do.
