Yesterday, I saw a photograph of my sister, son and I at the swimming pool from this past summer. We were all smiling.
Looking at it, I didn't recognise the person in the photo. She was smiling and appeared happy. That person was me, but the outer me. Not the inner me.
I know I smile... it's a reflex... but the lack of happiness is frustrating. The smile was hollow. Empty. Meaningless.
