Your facial expressions and actions don’t always mirror what you’re feeling inside. Teenagers are good at hiding how they’re really feeling inside. We don’t always want others to know what’s really going on inside and so we sometimes we put on a smile.
We don’t want our friends to think we’re weird or different.
We don’t want our parents to tell to just try harder.
We don’t want our teachers or counselor make it a big deal.
This is what makes me want to hide behind a smile when inside I’m not always happy. It can be hard to be real when being happy is what people want. You can still help someone even if they have a smile.
