Happy People and Liars

So, in my wanderings to and fro in the earth and walking up in down in it (did you like how I just alluded to me being some demonic figure), I have come into contact with many, many people. Now, most people are okay to be around for short amounts of time, but others make me want to club them so that the Sabertooth Tiger outside can have its way with them. Yet, there are some people that I’ll never understand entirely, and these are the ones that it seems like it should be the easiest to understand…the happy people.

You know the ones that I’m talking about. The people who always seem to be happy no matter what happens to them. It’s quite an odd phenomenon if you ask me. However, part of me realizes that for most, this is a finely crafted front. I mean honestly is there anyone out there who could be happy all the time. The answer is no. People by the nature of being people cannot be happy all the time. So therefore, I present to you my strata of “happy” and not-so-happy people.

1) The normal people. These are the ones who seem to be happy at times and are sad, angry, scared, etc. when it is right that they should be. Most people fit into this category if they are any kind of an emotionally mature adult. Let’s face it everyone goes through a plethora of emotions on a daily basis…it’s only a natural thing.

2) The sad sacks/Emo kids. To find a true one of these is rare. I am of the mindset that they don’t really exist and that the people who claim to be them are not really. These people are the ones who always seem to be sad. I don’t know how anyone can accomplish this short of having some mental disorder that they have to treat with medication. People just are sad all the time for no reason…and to those out there who believe they are “emo kids” grow up for the love of God…it’s not all bad. Find something that makes you happy.

3) Happy People: These are the ones that I would consider to be the worst off of all. Why? Because they are the emotional bottlers. They face the world with smile whether it be a real one or one that they have painted on for years. I think they are the worst off because most of them don’t even know that they are making themselves miserable. It’s a fact of the matter that people need to be angry and sad sometimes…You can’t face everything with a smile….and let’s just face it bottling everything up within the framework of that smile isn’t going to end well for someone some day…I also tend to think of these people as “liars”. Not because they necessarily lie to people…but because they are lying to themselves…if you’re not happy, you need to know yourself well enough to be able to openly admit that.

Why you might ask yourself did I write this blog? Well, it’s simple. I have people like the 3rd group around me all the time, and it weirds me out on some level to think that behind that finely polished facade, there is more going on that their smile keeps locked in…and I wonder why.
