Crazy eyes?

I have what people would call "crazy eyes" which is mostly due to anxiety and stress but also it seems to be genetic since my dad has these crazy eyes too except his are worse. By crazy eyes i mean like my eyes look like i'm on cocaine because of the anxiety i get while looking someone in the eyes or by just being anxious in a social situation. It gets in the way of my social life hugely and causes me to be extremely insecure and shy around people because i am so scared of looking at them in the eyes. People usually think i'm on cocaine or something like that even though i don't take drugs. I know the obvious answer is to get rid of the anxiety but that seems impossible at this point.

I use to have that problem as a vocalist. I didn't know about it until it was brought up. I still have that problem in public. My Mom and others have told me I look like "a deer in the headlight''.

There's really not much you can do about it. I guess you could try looking in a mirror and work on softening your eyes. I remember being in voice lessons and my teacher wanting me to look in the mirror to watch my mouth. Maybe the same thing could work for your eyes?

Maybe you should try calming exercises and supplements. Like chamomile tea or magnesium. I would say try weed but that may worsen things. I used to have crazy eyes, maybe I still do. I know I hate looking people in the eyes and maintaining eye contact. I have no idea what is the proper way to maintain eye contact so usually I end up looking crazy

Ha ha. I have heard people say that about Aboriginals frightening them, because “they see right through you”.
Failing to question within, why another person seeing right through you would pose such a threat.

"Crazy eyes" to me just look ungrounded. Do you make a point to get out in nature often and enjoying the moment while you're out there; walking barefoot through the grass soil or sand, leaning up against a tree to read or meditate, etc. Grounding can also take form of physical focused exercise. These activities also instill confidence and being more centered in social situations.

There are different eyes and expressions of them...my view of crazy eyes is the feeling I get from them that the person is ungrounded; most aboriginal eyes just look wild and piercing to me. Not crazy.
