Do you smile

Do you smile often? I know it is more common to smile in the American culture. In Russia if a person smiles often, other people may perceive this person a little weird. When I was in America I smiled more than I do here in Finland. I still smile but not so much. I think it is a cultural matter.

It definitely has got cultural connections. If you walk around in the States with a straight face, people will think something is wrong. Even I am annoyed that if I am not smiling, people want to know what’s wrong or start interrogates me on what happened. Most times it’s literally nothing.

I wish it wasn’t like this. Sometimes I don’t want to smile and I don’t want to have to explain myself to every passing stranger.

Masks helps with this greatly. It’s so much easier to walk around with whatever face I want.

I try to only smile when it’s genuine, but luckily the world never runs out of things to smile at

Yeah, I smile or chuckle a little if I see something funny here or youtube. Which, I should be grateful for since its been hard to smile for me.

When I’m relaxed and with my computer, especially, I find myself smiling and even chuckling.

I smile outside but rarely inside although earlier today I was watching a show with my daughter and legitimately laughed.
