    Faking It...

    I do it. So I'm sure everyone else does. There are those days when you feel like crap and nothing can make you happy. The only reason you smile is if you're forced to be friendly. It comes out so fake. But most of the time people don't care, they just go about their day...

     Your skin isn't paper,

    don't cut it. Your face isn't a mask, don't cover it. Your size isn't a book, don't judge it. Your life isn't a film, don't end it. You are beautiful the way you are .. :))

    Faking It With The Best Of Them

    I Wonder.

    You hide behind your smile but you don't fool me. I know you feel like crying sometimes so instead you smile and laugh and then look the other way. He says ''you alright?'' and you reply ''yeh'' in this chirpy voice. But behind that chirp there is agony and sorrow ... something i...

    Not everyone is happy

    when they smile. Sometimes it takes all that person has to force out a smile and pretend that everything is alright when all they wanna do is cry or scream. Breathe out the bad and inhale the good. Let go of the bullshit and try to always be positive. Look at the brighter side...
