Fake yourself and be happy


Do you want happiness? Do you want the secret I have used for years just to cope? It is very simple. Be happy.

Cute girl isn’t interested? Be happy. Cat dies? Be happy. Fail exam? Be happy. Just be happy. No matter what happens, tell yourself that. Be happy be happy be happy. Smile as you spend another night alone, when you see the one girl who might have made you happy in someone else’s arms. Against their lips. Smile.

Because the mind is quite a powerful thing. If you keep this up long enough, soon you will truly convince yourself you’re happy. You can go to and from school or work or college and no matter what happened that day, you’ll still be happy. Only in the early hours of morning will the reality of it start to sink in, but you can just ignore this. And who’s around to see your façade fall at two in the morning? No one, because god forbid they see the sad, self loathing person you are behind the mask. No, mask is not the right word.

Because it is not just a mask of a smile that you keep up, any one could do that. What this ‘mind over body’ stuff is true happiness, so long as you do not think about it. You can go about your day and be genuinely happy, with this new cheery demeanour you can have friends again, maybe there’ll even be a girl who starts to show interest. You’re actually happy. Until you are at home of course, at two in the morning, with no friends or cute girl to keep your mind off itself. That is when you start to remember how sad you are. You have time to think about everything in your life, and you remember why you shouldn’t be happy. But of course the next morning comes with a whole new set of distractions and you can feel happy again.



It’s two in the morning. I feel like dying.

  1. dont make one girl your only chance at happiness, as you know theres plenty of fish in the sea, but instead of using a pole use a net.

  5. Dude sounds like you are feeling depressed...for me the best way to feel better is to keep myself occupied.The more you got going on in your life, the more confidence you will have, and people will pick up on that.

  16. If you fake it well enough to convince yourself, it's not faking and it can spread to others too. Which may make you happier. Seeing happy people usually makes other people happy

  25. Fake yourself huh. It is a good advise but it shouldnt be a mantra because mediocrity would settle in and no matter how much of a failure you where you wouldnt notice. But i have faked happiness but like i said you shouldnt make it an excuse for not landing your goals.

  27. Just always remember the motto
    "Heres a little song I wrote,
    I like too sing it note for note,
    So don't worry,
    Be happy"

  28. Just keep your chin up and quit sweating the small stuff. You have years to be happy, don't let a few months slow you down.

  29. Forcing a smile does truly have a great effect on your state of mind in my opinion!

  30. I have a heavy mind over body ethic, faking a smile makes you feel shitty but genuinely being happy in a shit situation can make it all the better.
