Faking a Smile Quotes

Sometimes we fake a smile because we are being disingenuous and trying to appear friendly when we are upset with someone. Other times, we may feel down and depressed and just want to put on a happy face to fake like we are doing okay when we really feel bad and depressed inside.

In any case, faking a smile ALWAYS means we are hiding our emotions!
