Do you act as if all is fine but deep inside it's not?

Do you think that we are all actors, pretending that all is fine when it's not? I noticed the other day that I was walking around as if all was well but deep inside my boots my socks were sliding off and it was driving me crazy but I acted like a brave soldier instead of showing my displeasure as to what was actually happening. Has something similar happened to you? Today, a little stone was inside my shoe but just kept on walking though it bothered me. Maybe it's true after all that the only way to know what's going on in someone else's life is to walk a mile in their shoes? What do you think? What drives you crazy but you keep it all inside pretending that all is well? Do you remember the song The Great Pretender by The Platters?

@db20747 When we have things that we are carrying and there is snow and slush all around then we need to find a suitable place where we can put things down and be able to take our boots off and find the little stone that is irritating our foot.
I do not think that it is acting, at times there are just situations that we cannot do much except hold our heads up high so us not to affect the people around us. As with the socks and stone, I don't think it's that hopeless, I'd probably find a rubber band, and I would take revenge on the stone by throwing it on the road where a lot of cars pass or a river if I find one
"Do you act as if all is fine but deep inside it's not?" Good question, but if we go deeper than deep, all is fine really, isn't it? This is because levels of deepness cover many things over with themselves, and yet the deepest level of deepness remains unperturbable, it is our inner core of love. When we feel bad then, and want to hide, we should go deeper under this feeling, and let the underlying love break free again, past these rocks holding it down, and be love again, even as God created us to be so.

@1hopefulman Well, if we believe in God, I would have to say that God's original plan was to make us that way, peaceful, loving, and truthful. Sin has covered this stuff over with itself, but underneath it all, deep enough down, must remain the blueprints still in us of God's original plans for us, I think.
