I was having a really terrible night so when I went out I decided to smile big (like Christina Ricci Wednesday Addams) and when people asked me how I was doing I replied enthusiastically. Even though I was really sad I noticed that smiling and pretending to be happy actually made me happy and for some reason people were extra nice to me. And now I am happy. Also, sometimes I think when bad things happen it’s actually a really good thing. It gives you perspective and epiphanies to fuel you so you can do better. I knew all of this already, but sometimes I forget.
