Thank you so much for the great words on how the forced smile is killing us! So many great points here I see are true and meaningful. I inhale and breathe "normal" with gusto. That state of being is one I rarely get. I gave up on pleasing people years ago. If you don't like me, peace be with you, goodbye. This point goes for the not feeling happy also. I am mostly at peace and that is the best I will ever get.I get up around 10 pm daily, so I am always wide awake at 5 am. Chatting with my international love keeps me going in so many ways. Emotionally I try to process all as they come, otherwise I might go insane. 😁❤️
