I Act Goofy to Cover Up Sadness

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 511 People

    Silly.

    There is something about making others laugh and smile that makes you forget for just a moment that you are unhappy, or that something is wrong. For a moment it takes the weight off of your shoulders, and of you make someone else smile often enough, it is almost impossible to...

    Your Goofy Sadness You Don't See Lights Our World!

    Oh my dear sweet girl. This is you. You don't see it you don't know but we all do. That is why we join you in your goofiness. The more we join in the more real it becomes. The longer and harder you laugh the easier it becomes. Remember the zoo? Remember our fort? Remember our...

    I Think I'm More Goofy When I'm Nervous

    But I do cover up goofy with sadness because it sometimes a lot of the times cheer me up. I act like such like a dork. Not so much lately on for the fact that I'm growing up. I'm don't really worry about so much like I used to and my self esteem is going up. Now it's like when...

    When Ity's Not The Crying Sad.

    It takes a lot to make me cry, and when I do I cover it up with anger, but when I am sad and not crying I usually act goofy just so people don't know. I don't like people know when I'm sad. They try copmforting me, and giving me advice. It kinda makes me mad because I know...

    Reed In The Wind

    Sometimes you billow wither the wind may blow. Sometimes you snap in half. I feel lost, sad and alone. I put on a brave face for everyone. In real life, I'm the "go-to woman," the one with all the answers. I don't have all the answers. I don't even have the answers for my...

    Tears of a Clown

    To see me, most people would think my life was great, I'm always dorking out on something, I smile a lot and I laugh a lot.  Inside though there are storms raging.  Only a very select few people know what's really going on behind the smile.  I don't have much and I...

    Restaurant

    I once was in a restaurant - this was in the 80's, and I was pretty young. I was on holiday with my mother, but I ate alone this day. The waiter was completely ignoring me - he was totally focused on all the attractive girls in the restaurant... I wasn't able to handle the...

    Question...

    "What's the biggest lie you've ever told?" I smile don't I? That't my lie. I laugh don't I? That is my lie. I dance don't I? That's my lie. I play don't I? That is my lie. I said "i'm fine" didn't I? That's my lie. But above all I told you I don't feel, and that was a lie.
