People always think you’re pissed off.
Everybody assumes that you hate them when they first meet you.
Which is not always true, OK?
People don’t always know how to initiate a conversation with you and tend to give up trying pretty quickly because they think you couldn’t care less about their opinions, anyway.
There are moments when you could’ve sworn you were smiling, but nope… everyone just seems to think you’re pissed off at them.
You go through life believing you’re smiling until you look at yourself in the mirror and you’re Grumpy Cat.
And you’re sick and tired of everyone telling you to smile for the damn camera.
Just let me look however I want and you can feel free to smile to your heart’s content.
You hate it when people ask you if something’s wrong or tell you there’s nothing to be upset about.
Why don’t you let me and my emotionless face face be?
You avoid making eye contact with strangers because you’re worried that your gaze is too ~intense~ for them.
You exhibit superhuman strength in meetings just trying to keep a smile plastered on your face.
Which is so exhausting that you’ve begun to try less and less.
Your happiness is not the first thing people notice about you.
When you’re quiet, people think you’re secretly cursing them.
And sunglasses just make you look like you’re throwing MAJOR shade.
They think you’re judging the world, but really you’re just thinking about what you’re going to eat for dinner.
You know full well that if you were cast in a film, you’d play the villain.
People tend not to make a lot of jokes when you’re around because they’re terrified of your reaction:
For as long as you can remember, your face has been more… serious… than other people’s.
And of course you laugh—you’re human. But you don’t go around exposing your teeth for just any old reason.
Only your true friends and family know when you’re really happy or angry.
For the rest of the world, it’s impossible to differentiate between the two.
You’ve often had to clarify that what you said was “just a joke” because people just don’t get it from your face.
And if you’re sarcastic, your face shows it in everything you say.
Some very judgmental people won’t even take the time to get to know you, but will simply hate you at first sight.
Their loss, really.
The flip side? Fewer people bothering you in public.
Congratulations! Your face saves you from people trying to invade your personal space.
And people always think twice before asking you for a favor.
But even though most people think you’re sending them straight to hell just by the look on your face
Those who know you know that deep down you’re gracious, kind, and know how to have a damn good time.
