YOUR HEART CAN’T SING? FAKE IT.
That is the Six word story I’m sending to Shweta’s blog, the Saturday Six Word Story Prompt (6WSP). I invite you to join her challenge and have some fun with her word “fake.”
Extenuating circumstances! Of course there is a place for sorrow, unhappiness, and misery. That place is where you are sitting with someone who keeps your secrets, who understands pain, who is wise. (I start with Jesus.) It is not while gossiping with another gossiper who is just waiting to top your story and/or get along to tell someone else.
Now for my rational behind that statement since it is not the popular current advice — “Be True to Yourself” – “Let is all Hangout” – “Don’t be a Hypocrite” – “That’s Just the Way I Am”
My advice: If that’s the way you are, change. Many will not take my advice because they like being pitied. Sorrow is much more dramatic than happiness.
If you want to be happy, put on a happy face. I notice that one reason young people say they don’t like to visit old folks is because they are often so negative. Being negative does not have a charming age in any decade of life.
