Over the years, I have met amazing people with whom I have connected deeply. And often, I always thought it was because of the things they said during our conversations.
Some other times, I had no clue why I was moved by someone. Why I liked them.
Until… until, I started being aware of the emotional impact I had on other people each time I had conversations with them.
I quickly learned that it is possible to dazzle a person not by the things you say to them. But instead by your aura. The atmosphere your presence creates when you are with another person can often leave that person thinking:
There is just something about this woman (or this man) that I like a lot. Although I can’t quite put my finger on it.
Emotions are dynamic.
They take shape in whatever way they wish. And they are capable of having you do things you might have solemnly vowed not to do before.
Because of this, some times I never rely on the content (the sweet sounding words I could easily spew while in conversation). When it feels right, I instead rely on my emotional presence. I lay all my trust on the possibility that my aura will be the key to get another person’s trust and get them to relax and open themselves up in my presence.
Because at times, words become superfluous. At times, then, silence, when used deftly, is all that is needed to create and have an unforgettable experience.
And be emotionally captivating.
I appreciate it when another person gives me their attention, and more so, when they bleed in front of me.
I think this is simply because I, too, wear my heart on my sleeve.
