Are people who smile really happy?


Understanding smiling will help you take constructive action if you’re the one that tries hard to appear happy when you’re not, or you have a loved one that you think is hiding their pain.

It’s odd to think that people can be severely depressed, with all the accompanying crippling symptoms, and yet manage to conceal their condition, often even from relatives. Is their depression any less real or true because they can go to work, smile, and even laugh? I believe it is. Even the happy depressive can reach a point where he or she is unable to sustain the facade any longer.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), almost 265 million people worldwide suffer from depression. Individuals in this situation can exhibit a variety of classic symptoms, such as deep depression, low self-esteem, and changes in their daily lives. Others may be able to see some of these signs, while others may be kept private.

  • Some people who are stressed overeat, and others lose their appetite. Weight fluctuations are normal in people who are depressed.
  • When someone is upset, they can find it difficult to get out of bed because they want to sleep all the time. Others are unable to sleep and can experience insomnia or significant changes in their sleeping patterns, such as staying up at night and sleeping throughout the day.
  • Guilt, worthlessness, and feelings of hopelessness are all common feelings.
  • Loss of interest in activities they normally enjoy.

So be wary of the smile’s false promise. We have been led to assume that appearance is a more useful diagnostic method than it is. It’s likely that by the time mental illness becomes visible, it’s already really severe. What is conclusion do we get? Pay attention to what others are doing. They could be communicating with you in a way that their face is incapable of expressing.
