Isn’t smiling great? Smiling is very important and when you’re sad, a smile from a friend is everything. We use smiles to put people at ease, make a good impression and simply to show our happiness. How is it that something so small as a smile is capable of changing your day?
A smile is special and so very useful. It can express your happiness in a way that words cannot. Just getting a friend or a special person to smile can be the whole point of your day. And when you smile that transfers over to a friend or loved one so easily that they couldn’t possibly not smile back. It can be oh so very contagious, much like a good laugh. When you really care, something as small as a smile can mean so much.
That simple upturn of your lips can be a mask to hide behind as well. When you want to hide your pain and sadness a smile, while now not contagious, can keep people at bay. It hurts to be sad all the time and it’s hard to be around friends when you can be a little depressed but sometimes a smile to cover that up, no matter how difficult it is to do or how unconvincing it is, is all that you can do. It is something to hide behind, something to give to people instead of sad expressions or tears. Even if it doesn’t work it is at least something.
All we want to do is be happy right?
Smiles make people happy. Smile. Smile. Smile. Just writing this makes me smile.
If I can make people smile just by writing and sharing then I think I’ll have to do it more often.
Do what makes you happy and if you get the chance smile, smile for other people so that they too may in turn smile back.
