Its that old saying, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and sometimes puts a smile on our face all at the same time. Nobody likes a cry-baby, and sometimes people who cry the blues are lonely because of that.

I agree with you. "Smile though your heart is aching." It is one of the lyrics in a song.

99% of the time my smile is genuine and I'm happy. This time last year my smile hid the pain behind my mom passing away.

I smile because i am happy to be here for another Christmas. My smiles are genuine. There wasca time where I had to smile through much sadness in my life. Keeping a positive attitude helped.

I think wearing that smile, even when in despair, offers some protection against others asking questions. If a person appears sad, then questions may be asked and the smile-wearer would prefer not to talk about what is bothering them.

I learned to smile so people wouldn't think I looked mean or ask me what was wrong. I smile as well to look prettier in photos. A smile sure can hide a lot!

It is easy to know when I am bothered - because I can't fake a smile.

I try to just smile when I mean it. I feel if I smile when I am not happy or having a bad day is a fake smile. If I am not happy I will not smilel
