    Behind My Smile

    It really takes me a lot of strength to smile while I feel this overwhelming and constant pain inside me. People around me just don't understand what's behind my smile. It's a sad and confused little girl who has a fragile soul and...

    But I Laugh With You On E P

    I hardly smile in real life I dont know why. Others think I am aloof or indifferent. But I am not. When I am not smiling, I am thinking. When I am thinking, I am planning and when I am planning, I deliver. I guess I know I know. Smiling is a friendly inexpensive and rewarding...

    I Don't Really Smile That Much

    Yeah, if you were know me in reality, I do not smile a lot. I don't know, to me, I find it uncomfortable to move such muscles  to form a sideways crescent.Even in pictures, I never really smile, and when I do, it's usually a very small faint one. Besides, I can never show my...

    I almost never actually smile,

    that is with the corners of my mouth turning up and teeth showing. But the people who know me the best, they know to look in my eyes for my smile.

    There was once a time

    where I smile my brightest. Nowadays, not so much. Whenever I did smile, I always end up heartbroken, disappointed, or hurt some time later, not shortly afterwards, but also not too long afterwards. By not smiling, I tend to think that I'm protecting myself from pain...pain I...

    I bet people see me smiling like all the time,

    but what they don't realize is when I have my back towards them. I sometimes just feel sad because of so many things and it drains me. To people it might seem like I smile more than I don't, but I know for a fact that I do not smile as often as they think I do. Sometimes its...

    People Can'T Smile All Day, Every Day!

    People often tell me often that I look sad or upset. It’s SO annoying! I’ll be at work concentrating on a project…or in a store deciding what to buy – and someone comments on my lack of a smile. This is so strange to me! Who do you know who walks around with a big ol...

    On Occasion...

    On occasion I will smile, such as when laughing, but for the most part I usually don't. It doesn't necessarily mean that I am a depressed person, I just show happiness differently I suppose. I generally show most of my emotion through my eyes, which many people don't catch on to...

    Not Much Of A Smiler

    People have told me I don't smile very much. I tell them that, when I'm happy, they'll see me smile. It's just that I'm not very often happy.

    I Am Not A People Person

    We live in this society that exemplifies being pleasant and social. By and large I just dont much care for people, I don't enjoy being among them, and when I have to be pleasant I have to force a smile. This is not because I am an ill-tempered person (Although I am) or that I...

    I'm Not Sad

    Despite my issues, I'm a happy person! I just don't look like it! everyone always asks "are you sad, what's wrong, did something happen, are you crying, are you going emo?!" No, no, no and no. I'm totally fine!! My natural expression is sort of solemn and wary. I can't help it! I...
