Well now what a question! Again – this could take a book to answer but I’ll keep it short. I must ask do you mean, the body, or the face? The face, the eyes, the mouth and your expression usually show to the world how you feel and what you ‘stand for’. Some folk don’t like how they look so maybe drink grog to be more acceptable in the eyes of others.
As a youngster your biological mum and dad share the way you look. Later:’You are what you eat.’ Meaning if you live on ‘fast food’ you could look half alive and overweight while your liver and kidneys try to get rid of the ‘rubbish’ you have pumped into it- but it tastes so good. (it tastes so good because your body is not allowed to try good pure food that makes your body, and your eyes sparkle).
Look closely at our Aussie athletes – the hockey team, the swimmers, runners and all the others. “Do you imagine they can be world champions living on ‘Junk food’?” No Sireeee!
On the other hand if a child is abused in any way (sexual, physical or emotional) how can they ‘put on a happy face’ when they feel awful in their heart? Some, maybe most, take to alcohol to dull the pain in their heart. Playing music can help a lot if it is possible when the heart is aching; but not everyone can take up music because it mostly costs money.
And dress: Who do you dress to impress? Your mum, Dad, employer, best friend, a boy or girl you want to attract? Our dress and attitude tell other people what we are, want, or hope to be.
