    Not So Bad, But...

    It's a real ***** when you're feeling like a god on earth, you know... And when you try to smile at people. It looks a bit disturbing... I actually had to train in front of a mirror to develop a non-spooky smile, giving me the super-power of being able to bust out a wide variety...

    Honestly, I never thought

    that I was sad until other people told me. I never knew that the things I felt were not typical. I never knew that I was "negative." Now that I know, it consumes me.

    Perceived Sadness/depression

    I've always been told I look sad and am asked constantly whether I am or not.I've also been asked if I do drugs! I think people should leave me and my 'sad' expression alone.

    Haunted By Sadness.

    I hear that all the time.. and that my mouth is smiling but my eyes are haunted by sadness.. Sure I've not had a happy life and I guess I almost always feels a little down, but "haunted by sadness" sounds so dramatic..

    I Just Don't Have A Very Expressive Face!

    There are alot of things that bore me and I don't like to fake emotions because that makes you even move apathetic on the inside, I hate apathy! My expression is quite serious most of the time but it doesn't mean I'm sad :)

    Umm...yeah...

    Even when I'm not sad, people come up and ask me, "Hey, what's wrong? You look sad." -.-' It's just that I'm often in a contemplative mood. And I don't always think 'happy thoughts'. So, I tend to have a...brooding expression almost all the time, which makes people think that I...

    Isn't It Kind Of Rude?

    People are constantly asking me if I'm OK. Have been... kind of forever. I don't smile often, partially because I am self conscious about my teeth and partially because I prefer to keep my emotions to myself. Also, I have big puppy eyes and pouty lips, which can't help. Maybe it...

    My lips are turned into an almost permanent frown; I'd say 90% of the day. I do it when I'm bored (Always), I do it when I'm focused, or just actually sad.Of course, I'm not the only one to notice this, classmates throughout the years have mentioned this various times, and have...

    They actually said "Stop looking so angry all the time!" He was making a joke, but to be frank, I felt insulted.

    That Doesn't Mean I Am.

    I look sad (I hear from people) when I'm feeling like normal. But when I'm happy I look neutral. Unless I'm really happy. When I'm sad I also look sad. But not more sad than normal. Unless I have a really bad day and I have a breakdown. So most of the time, I look sad. But that...
