I smile, because it's easier.
It's easier than looking sad. If you look sad, people want to know why. So I smile.
These last few days have been tough. For reasons that elude me, and reasons I can pin point.
When I saw you in the supermarket, I felt sad for time lost and bad feelings.
When I saw you at the centre, and my kids got excited to see you, I felt sad. For far too many reasons to list.
When I see you and you smile, I know you're smiling because it's easier. So am I.
