We've all heard palm readers try to tell us what the different lines on our hands may actually mean, but sometimes, they can be rather off.

Palm reading is when the shape, color, and lines of one's palm as well as the length of their fingers are observed and studied. 

For thousands of years, people have tried to read palms in an attempt to find out more about a person's character and emotions.

In fact, palmistry has an incredibly long history in both ancient India and China, though the roots of the practice are not certain.

Its origins in China date back more than 3,000 years ago, since the Zhou Dynasty.

And the first systemic instance of palmistry in China was way back during the Western Han Dynasty in 206 BC - 9 AD. 

And although palm reading may have been very important back in those days (and still probably is to many people), it is also sometimes just used for fun. 

So, keep in mind, that this is just for fun.

We're not actually trying to predict the future here! 

However, hopefully, you can use this article to learn a little bit more about your own personality and what you may want in your own life.

Try to focus on and use your good qualities to better your community and yourself.

3. If this is your heart line, then you tend to be content and confident in your love life.

And this applies regardless of whether you're single or in a relationship. You're happy and confident with where you stand either way.
