Grin and Bear It


Happiness is contagious

so spread it all over

even if you find it hard to smile.


Grin and bear it 

and maybe you will discover

that forced smiles become real ones. 


You can make someone feel better

with just your upturned mouth

and in turn make yourself joyful.

Forced smile

I use to get berated for my "fake smile". Thing is, I always thought my smile was real because I couldn't keep it from forming on my face. Half smiles do help and a return smile does make it bigger.
