Why do I often pretend to be happy? When I definitely am not.  Probably to avoid other’s questions which would put me on the spot.

PRETENDING  makes it easy so others think I am all okay.  And I am….a lot of the time …depending on the day.

PRETENDING  means I don’t have to answer prying questions.  Or have others look at me in their sad and sympathetic way.

i don’t want other’s sympathy.  As I know they often don’t know what to say.  So…I pretend everything is ok….and it is sometime  each and every day!  ###
