✒️On Smiling cont.
It's akin to some taxing physical labor just to hand them a gift they won't realize the weight of, because societally I'm expected to. I'm a woman. I have to smile. I'm in an extroverted world, I have to smile. The consequences of not smiling have affected me at work and can see it. People I really like don't bother saying hi because they assume I don't really want that connection based on the fact that I don't offer a smile in the hallway. Just another way life weighs on me. 🤔
