I love my eyes! Although, when I was younger I quickly became self conscious of the attention I would receive as a result of my eyes. I have memories from when I was at school of kids surrounding me to try get a better look at my eyes. While the kids were just curious, it sometimes made me feel like an animal in a zoo or something! The comments I receive about my eyes are always positive, and always have been. Generally people find them interesting and want to know how my eyes came to be that way. I remember one boy from school never believed me when I said my eyes were natural, and was convinced that I wore contact lenses. It became a bit of a game trying to convince him otherwise! I am lucky that my eyes never resulted in me been bullied or anything like that

I used to tell people I had a glass eye or it’s from water color paint fight. Lol. I had fun giving them “reasons” why I had different colored eyes. Heck I don’t know how it happened but it’s still cool when people ask about it.
I think it’s very beautiful and special, please share your story email@example.com
I get compared to animals a lot. Asked all sorts of questions. And I’ve been called everything from a faerie to a witch….
