Not everyone who laughs is happy. Some people smile to hide their pain. Never assume that someone who seems happy is not hurting. Maybe they need someone to look through the laughter and smiles, and see that they are hurting inside.
I smile, I laugh, I put on a front because I find no need to trouble the people around me with my troubles, worries and problems. Everyone has their own shit to deal with. Only when I absolutely need help will I then voice it out. Is this healthy? I’m not exactly sure.
