I do!
I try these last days but depression wont let me...I cannot smile and I have to smile tomorrow,at work,that is what my boses said "you dont smile a lot,a smile doesnt cost"...isnt it so ironic?would she say this if she knew I am fucking depressed and suicidal for years?I wanted to punch her when she said it and scream at her "wake up u bitch,it is not like EVERYONE is so fucking happy as you are,deal with it!"
Naturally it will be hard to smile when feeling so down, i don't it too hard to smile, the smallest thing can make me laugh or smile, alot of funny things iv seen on SF have cracked me up or made me smile lol

if you're allowed to wear sunglasses at work, they make it difficult for people to detect a fake smile... :cool:
I do find it difficult to smile but not impossible. I normally feel sad and I just really don't feel like smiling but small things to make a crack in my face. For example, earlier this week I went out to do some shopping and as I was walking up the road, this small dog decided to walk across a zebra crossing. The cars all stopped and this woman driver casually stopped as she approached the crossing and started waving her arms around, in a shrug motion. The dog didn't give two craps. I did smile at that but maybe you just had to be there. :)
sometimes i cant smile, well that and look people in the eye.

people are always on at me, that I look really mean and angry all the time.

Sometimes a smile does cost, something some people just don't get it.

I attempt smiling. I don't like to think if it actually looks real though. I smile because I would like to make a least a couple of friends and maybe smiling will eventually lead to something. It is unfortunate that some people don't understand how difficult smiling is for some people. I think it would be hard for someone to know what it is like to be depressed unless they are. I am also depressed and I wish people were more aware of what problems it can cause.

You should never feel obligated to smile, and you most certainly shouldn't adapt for some twat who has no business telling you to. I don't smile either, and most of the time no one brings it up, but occasionally someone will ask why I don't. When this happens, particularly when the person's being pushy about it, I'll just stare him/her in the eye and not say a word. That usually shuts them up. Obviously if it's your boss, you can't be this direct, although the same principle applies.

I still smile. But I can't look at people. All I can do is move my mouth, if they look in to my eyes, I'm worried they'll see who I am, and what I've done.
