Can't Stop Smiling

I learned this a while ago, but it still bugs me a little. I don't remember the context, but at some point I told a couple of my co-workers that I get depressed a lot. They were surprised, saying that I always look happy, even when I'm complaining, and that I smile too often to be that down. One of the guys saying that is more or less the same way, so it bugged me even more coming from him. A fake ought to be able to recognize a fake, right? I don't know if it's because people don't pay attention, or if my outward personality is just too convincing, but it bugs me that most folks don't get how I actually feel. Yeah, I know it's my own fault, but it's still frustrating.

Oh it's not that nobody is picking up on the subtle hints you drop. It's a simple case of them not giving enough of a crap to check if you are giving them subtle hints.


They have their own lives and their own little crises to occupy their thoughts, and just like you they each think that their own is the most important. Why should they care about anyone else, let alone your situation?

That is the way that particular cookie crumbles. Deal with it.
