Smile but not feeling happy

The only reason I smiled is to cover how much I’m hurting. It does not mean that I’m happy because I never feel happy since.

I’ve done this so many times throughout my life. It’s important that even if you have to fake it for some people, you dont do it for everyone. Find a couple people you can trust and be honest with them about how you’re feeling.
You matter.

Hang in there, friend
