Smile

By: Steve Fite

“You know, you’re never going to have any friends if you’re always so unhappy.”  

Just the kind of thing a little unhappy girl wants to hear from her mother.

“Even if you don’t feel happy:  Smile. If you smile and keep smiling, you’ll see, it’s easier to stay smiling.”

Much to her chagrin, her mom was right.  Smiling became easy. Eventually everyone started seeing her as the happiest kid.  Always smiling. Even into adulthood.

But underneath she was still very much an angry little girl.  

All her mother really taught her was how to trick everyone else into thinking otherwise.
