So for the past, I don’t know, ever people have constantly asked me “What’s wrong?”. I promptly answer nothing. When they give me that look that says, “Come on…you can trust me with your hardships. Just tell me what’s wrong,” I have to assure them once again that nothing is wrong other than the fact that they’re getting kind of annoying. And I don’t mean “nothing” like fourteen year old girls yell at their parents when their first boyfriend breaks up with them. I’m serious. Nothing is the matter. I am perfectly at peace with the world like 90% of the time I’m asked that question. I always thought it was weird until I started looking at other people’s faces. On the shuttle to campus, I scoped random people’s expressions when they weren’t looking. Then I went home and looked at myself in the mirror with my default neutral expression. This is what I found:
Somehow from this face people get the feeling that I’m in some sort of pit of despair. No. I’m sorry my mouth doesn’t just settle into a smile when I’m not thinking.
Does anybody else have this issue?
