Til your smile is real
People feel a need to hide how they feel when they are in pain because we live in a society that expects them to. To make others feel more comfortable? Because people wrongly assume if they fake it they’ll feel more “positive?”
Never fake a smile on my behalf.
Don’t walk on eggshells with me.
If you had a bad day I want to know.
I’d much rather you spill your pain to me on the daily until your smile is real.
If you are part of my life, be in your skin.
