My Ex..

He taught me how not to look in the eyes of others. He was pretty emotionally abusive and conditioned me to not look someone in the eyes, especially other men.

I've never been able to completely shake it, even with my ex long gone and being married to someone else.

Try to focus on the shape of eyes you see, on their colors, on their flecks and on their light... it can be very nice and sometimes funny... if you start enjoying those things you may overcome your fear.

Yipers!!!...maybe it's an ex<x>pression of low self esteem or something. Do you think?
