Why we must pretend that we okay?
the same reason we aren't actually okay. i.e. if we feel bad because we're unaccepted, we won't go around telling people we feel unaccepted for fear we will become more so unaccepted
It's more socially acceptable to put on a mask than expose your true feelings.
its the pride in us, and the reward or feeling independent
So we can make others happy so they will not worry about us.
We must NOT pretend that we're OK.
Well I wouldn't pretend every things ok I wouldn't bask in sorrow I would change my thought pattern to positive and happy and joyful to gain strength that I need to survive
