We have all been in this situation, someone asks how you’ve been and you say ”I’m fine” or ”I’m okay” and you smile. Even though you are breaking apart inside. The majority can’t see the difference between a fake smile and a real one. But some of us can. The ones that have seen some shit. Us who smile. While we are breaking apart. And you might think that you cover up your depression and sadness like you are the perfect actor, but then you meet the ones that sees right through you like you were a pond and all of your problems are just lying there on the bottom, you try to make the surface blurry but no matter how hard you try, they just see everything.
It’s often the ones that seem the happiest that actually needs a shoulder to cry on the most. People that are in the same situation gets this. Because they are there as well. They are your neighbor pond.
