MERRY IN SPITE OF TORMENT


Appearing merry or cheerful on the outside when you are crying or dying on the inside is a terrible strain.  Be extra compassionate with people who appear overly cheerful when the situation does not warrant it.  In extreme cases people will smile while at the same time telling you about something tragic.  Sometimes people who are smiling the most are the saddest inside.  Those who take special care to look perfect or together (in appearance) are often suffering in terrible situations.  Even “elves” have bad days and even people who are paid to be nice need kindness in return.  All who smile are not happy and all who laugh are not merry.  DW 1/2/17
