This photo was taken with my webcam.
I was on the verge of tears.
So I faked a smile and took a photo.
Because, isn't that what the whole world does?
Wear masks to hide how they really feel?

Though I'm not one to usually hide,
I'm tired of fighting with people
simply because I don't always wear a mask.

(it's too bad I have to hide my good feelings too.)

I'm sorry that people give you a hard time b/c you have actual emotions! I wouldn't have guessed from that pic that you were about to cry. I'm sorry you were!

i wish we didn't have to mask our emotions--good or bad. it's so hard to have to adjust how we appear to be feeling for the comfort of others. ((hugs))

Be yourself and don't worry about those people who can't deal with your emotions. You've earhned that right. Hang in there.
