Comforting Act

Swallowing stale tears.
Fake smiles used as comfort shields.
Awkwardness is cleared.

    1. It may be helpful at times, depending on the individual. I know a lot of people who use the β€œ fake it till you make it β€œ approach. I guess it depends on the situation. Thanks so much for sharing, my friend πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ’•

  1. Grace, why were your tears stale? Why were you crying? And why did you stop crying? Not because I want you to keep crying, but because, perhaps that could help me too.

    1. Hi Ato. Thank you for the heartfelt questions, but I do not only write about myself, I also enjoy writing about situations that touch me. Tears could be stale from holding them in for too long. There are many reasons why people could start to cry and I find crying and letting emotions out, to be therapeutic. Thanks again for your kind response.πŸ’•
