A perfect stranger in Wal-Mart told me to 'cheer up'. I have

A perfect stranger in Wal-Mart told me to 'cheer up'. I haven't actually been 'happy' for months. I guess it shows on my face. Have you heard the phrase 'fake it till you make It' ? It's the idea that if you smile enough it will actually improve your mood. I've been giving that a try. It actually feels like it might be working, but I wonder if i look like the Joker walking around with a big fake smile on my face. :-)

That's what I'm doing. Putting on that fake smile and fake interest in things outside of the house. But when I get home I'm so exhausted from it all. I got 2 texts from people saying how happy I look now. People don't know i cry when I get home.
