A person's life seen from the outside looks so happening, easy, and joyful. But not everyone who looks happy from the outside is happy with their life. Sometimes the rich life that we see on social media is just an illusion. One might be going through a lot in their actual life and put on a happy face. We might not even know what the person's real life is like. One may be suffering from the tension of career, overthinking that their mind can't stop, family chaos, the pressure of studies, and whatnot. Even after suffering from all this, the constant smile on the person's face is the only thing that the person wants to hold on to. If the smile fades away, people will question their sadness, people who are concerned will ask what's going on with them. And the person knows that even a little care from someone will melt them down, break them down into pieces and they won't be able to stop themselves from sharing everything. To avoid all those questions, to avoid the melt-down, one finds a way to deal with it, to just not show what's going on the inside. They start believing the quote: "Fake it till you make it". Fake the happening life till you have one. The smiles that we see on our faces aren't always happy. For many, it's a way to hide the tears, hide the chaos that is going on the inside. Sometimes the things going on inside should be outspoken to our close ones to have a real smile. Sharing things can surely not bring the end of the chaos but will bring peace that your heart seeks.
