I 've Been Told That I Look Sad All The Time

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 642 People

    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.

    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...

    Apparently, I either look extremely sad,

    or really pissed off. I guess that's just my face.

    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...

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

    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 :)

    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...

    Broken Smile

    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...

    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..

    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...
