Laughing on the outside, crying on the inside... can not be helped.

Is this hypocrisy, I don't think so. A story was told about a famous clown Garibaldi, whose job was to make people happy and relieved of their sorrows. Unknown to most people that most of the times he makes them laugh, he was actually crying within. We see this happening in work places. We wear smiles and put up a facade of happiness when actually deep inside us, we are crying. It's either because of problems in the house or with relationships. We feel it's much better this way than to let ourselves be swallowed by grief that it affects our work. Do you have a similar experience? How did you handle it?
