I'm not typically a miserable person,, but not insanely happy either. The reason I say this, is because I am sick of being told to smile all the time. When talking to someone, and they make me laugh, I smile, and they make a huge deal of it. Like "There you go, I knew you could smile", "what's wrong with you, why are you not smiling?"
I am tired of being told I should smile more often. If I'm happy or find something funny, I'll smile. But if I'm thinking or worried, my face is neutral. I've even been bullied about it occasionally, people getting aggressive because they've had an exchange with me at work or otherwise and I'm not grinning away like a Cheshire Cat. Someone who used to be a friend once told me I had a facial expression like ice which gave nothing away, and that's why men would never approach me on nights out. I look like a miserable cow essentially, which is not true at all.
It's not intentional, I don't go around meaning to look as sad as possible. But has anyone else had others tell them how they should look. smile all the time etc. Its really annoying and I am starting to find it offensive.
