It happens all of the time. Perhaps we are on an elevator or airplane, but someone occasionally will stare at you. It feels uncomfortable, strange, and weird as we wonder if we are supposed to somehow know this person. Our daily wisdom word today is staring.
Let us look at the Webster and daily wisdom word definition of staring.
Webster definition of staring-1. look fixedly or vacantly at someone or something with one’s eyes wide open. 2. a long fixed or vacant look. 3. eyes wide open, with a fixed or vacant expression.
Daily Wisdom Word definitional of staring-to look at someone making eye contact or focused on us which can feel uncomfortable, especially when it is a stranger staring at us.
Staring is considered rude. Our mind also goes through a series of thoughts including but not limited to wondering if there is something strange about ourselves. We also wonder, depending on the area the individual is staring at if we are supposed to know this person or have seen them before. It is not only uncomfortable, but we also can feel fear. Staring however, often happens for no reason at all. The person staring at your shirt for example is deep in thought. We perceive it depending on how aggressive it is as rude.
It makes it more difficult when we are sure we are not someone they know. Perhaps it’s a member of the opposite sex who is staring and finds us attractive. This also feels uncomfortable because we wonder if this person could be a stalker. We forget, however that we probably have stared at someone who was in our line of vision who catches us off guard and this is uncomfortable most of the time for them. I must admit, some people stand out and I have stared at a gorgeous man without meaning to do so. It made them uncomfortable.
I went a wedding this weekend and watched as the bride and seven bridesmaids and two maid of honors, and seven groomsmen and two best men who were listening to the groom and bride as they took vows. In this case we would expect the guests and bridal party to stare at the bride or groom as they repeated their vows to the minister after hearing him say, “repeat after me”. Instead I saw one of the individuals, a part of the bride and grooms wedding party who was there to witness the couples love. Instead I saw one of these individuals body language and eyes staring at the standing video camera and almost found myself laughing aloud since the camera was in the opposite direction of the minister and bridal party.
I think it would be normal to give a prolonged look at the camera but this went on for the majority of the vows and ceremony . This individual was showing their best smile and of course had the whitest teeth, and would not stop “staring at the camera”. I am sure when this video is played back, the bride and groom will get a kick out of this as it was rather funny to say the least.
When someone is staring at us it brings out many emotions and we wonder why they are staring too. Is it because we have food on our face, something in our teeth, a stain on our shirt, or because they are just strange. Despite this, staring seems to be part of the human element. Avoid making eye contact back if the stare is unwanted. Be sure to make eye contact back if it is a gorgeous man who you are enjoying the stare from. I hope you find this post on staring perfect for your Friday. This happens to be somewhat humorous when one is staring at an intimate object such as a camera. They need no more attention for this kind of staring from us! Samantha
