Question Addicted to smiling.? - September 26th 2009, 05:49 PM

well heres random one i suppose,im addicted to smiling honestly not even kidding.I always do,like even when im in the worst of moods or unhappy especially at school i smile anyways.I dont know why i do, i guess i just want people to always think im happy,i hate to make my friends upset.Ive been smiling so much all week for no reason like i havent felt happy in the least bit.im not even sure what my real smile is anymore,smile,smile,smile....


Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

I don't think it's an addiction. I just think it's YOU.
You're just generally a smiley person
My "girl who is a friend" is always smiling and laughing even when she's in a bad mood.
It's a good thing, don't worry about it.
If you're worried about losing your true smile, just realise when you're really smiling about something.
Hope this helps, (refer to signature)

I am strangely the same except I seem to laugh, even when some is killing me emotionally I tend to laugh. I don't know whether its a reflex to laugh it off or what =/. I think its a good thing that your smiling, it means that you don't get asked what's wrong all the time right?


You were the angel of my life, taught me to be free
Now I'm a stranger in your eyes.

i no wat u mean.
i smile when i dnt want to
then kick myself for feeling dishonest.
... the thing is.. u sound like an absoultly wonderful person!
GO ON SMILING!!!!
.... just be sure to be open abt how ur REALLY feeling with sum1...
the whole world doesnt have to be involved- just whomever u want.
a good friend... a group of frnds, watever, make sure the smile isnt a mask when u dnt want it to be.
i think u'll do great (bcos u have optimisim enbeded so deep within u!!)

Lil,

Smiling releases endorphins, which make you happy - so embrace the It's probably you subconsciously wanting to be happier!

peace and love

Yeah, I agree. Definitely not an addiction but most definitely a good thing to be doing every second! My friend is the same way, she never stops smiling no matter what. It's just who you are. I naturally have a crappy look on my face, your blessed. Lmao.
(:



When all your friends have come and gone,
And the sun no longer shines,
And the happiness for which you long is washed away like an ocean's tide,
When all the hard times outweigh the good,
And all your words are misunderstood,
When the day seems lost from the start
You must follow your heart,
You must follow your heart.
